House, which is working towards a youth program. This year, the budget has increased by $500,000 and Shepherd said the plan is to use every last cent. “We have a focus for where we actually grant – it’s always youth or children oriented,” she said. “It’s either regarding building financial literacy, building knowledge, helping them through school, building belonging – so they have that sense of community and family, to help build self esteem and social skills.” The funding is decided through a score-card system and hours-long review process, which judges the reach of the organization, the impact, how they will measure success, how they have planned their budget and more. Finally, after scores are tabulated and averaged out. “That’s when we throw our real personal experience as to who we think should have the most funding,” Shepherd said. “It’s a consensus model, so everyone needs to agree before we move on to another grant. It’s very inclusive.” And the best part of the whole process for Shepherd is seeing firsthand how the funds have made a difference. “I’m so pleased and blessed for this opportunity. We’re providing support for youth by youth and that’s so huge to me – that’s paramount.” smassah@peacearchnews.com

E N V I R O N M E N TA L E X T R AVA G A N Z A THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING IN SURREY’S 17TH ENVIRONMENTAL EXTRAVAGANZA! Amy Graham (at centre, with two volunteers), is will take part in this weekend’s Walk for ALS at Bear Creek park.

Walking in the name of dad Walk for ALS takes place Sunday at Bear Creek Park by Sarah Massah AMY GRAHAM walks

each year to honour of her father. The Surrey resident lost her father, Kenneth Graham, when he was 36, to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) – just two years after he was first diagnosed. “I didn’t live with my dad full-time – my parents split when I was two – but I remember everything being so different when I did get to see him. He was in a scooter and his hands were crippled. His speech was different,” Graham recalled. Graham was nine years old when her father died, and the loss had a lasting impact on

her, prompting her to volunteer with the ALS Society of B.C. She is also the co-ordinator – and a regular participant – for the People’s Drug Mart Walk for ALS, set to take place June 14 at Bear Creek Park. This year, registration for the walk takes place at 10 a.m. with the walk to follow at 11 a.m. Graham hopes to see more than 300 people walking in the park and helping raise the goal amount of $60,000. Money raised for the event goes to patient services and ALS research to find the cause and cure. For more information, visit www.walkforals.ca/bc

had made the “tree” from a large branch for the event. “It symbolizes branching out of the generations.” Noh noted she and her group members felt this was an important cause to champion due to the large senior population in White Rock. Many younger people don’t seem interested in what seniors can offer, causing emotional and physical marginalization, she added. “What we found is the general root of this issue is that we need to change our perspective as a society to really target this issue in the long run,” she said. “We decided to hold the event with the youth, because they will be the future of our society. We thought it would be easier to change their perspective which will then alleviate the issue in the long run.” While the three students have not yet chosen a group name, they all plan to continue working towards ending senior marginalization in their community, Noh said. “I just wanted to give people the opportunity to see, because there are so many stereotypes of seniors. But what I realized as I spoke to more seniors is that if you actually talk to them, all the stereotypes and prejudices we hold can be alleviated as whole, (youth and seniors) just need that opportunity to connect with each other.” smassah@peacearchnews.com

House, which is working towards a youth program. This year, the budget has increased by $500,000 and Shepherd said the plan is to use every last cent. “We have a focus for where we actually grant – it’s always youth or children oriented,” she said. “It’s either regarding building financial literacy, building knowledge, helping them through school, building belonging – so they have that sense of community and family, to help build self esteem and social skills.” The funding is decided through a score-card system and hours-long review process, which judges the reach of the organization, the impact, how they will measure success, how they have planned their budget and more. Finally, after scores are tabulated and averaged out. “That’s when we throw our real personal experience as to who we think should have the most funding,” Shepherd said. “It’s a consensus model, so everyone needs to agree before we move on to another grant. It’s very inclusive.” And the best part of the whole process for Shepherd is seeing firsthand how the funds have made a difference. “I’m so pleased and blessed for this opportunity. We’re providing support for youth by youth and that’s so huge to me – that’s paramount.” smassah@peacearchnews.com

E N V I R O N M E N TA L E X T R AVA G A N Z A THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING IN SURREY’S 17TH ENVIRONMENTAL EXTRAVAGANZA! Amy Graham (at centre, with two volunteers), is will take part in this weekend’s Walk for ALS at Bear Creek park.

Walking in the name of dad Walk for ALS takes place Sunday at Bear Creek Park by Sarah Massah AMY GRAHAM walks

each year to honour of her father. The Surrey resident lost her father, Kenneth Graham, when he was 36, to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) – just two years after he was first diagnosed. “I didn’t live with my dad full-time – my parents split when I was two – but I remember everything being so different when I did get to see him. He was in a scooter and his hands were crippled. His speech was different,” Graham recalled. Graham was nine years old when her father died, and the loss had a lasting impact on

her, prompting her to volunteer with the ALS Society of B.C. She is also the co-ordinator – and a regular participant – for the People’s Drug Mart Walk for ALS, set to take place June 14 at Bear Creek Park. This year, registration for the walk takes place at 10 a.m. with the walk to follow at 11 a.m. Graham hopes to see more than 300 people walking in the park and helping raise the goal amount of $60,000. Money raised for the event goes to patient services and ALS research to find the cause and cure. For more information, visit www.walkforals.ca/bc
