Team Matt and Ron Conquer Iceland!

Matthew and Ron Pfeifer, local realtors with Royal LePage Regina Realty, have completed "The Iceland Challenge for Shelter", a grueling 100K trek across Icelandic mountains to raise money for women’s shelters.  The trek was organized by Royal Lepage Shelter Foundation, Canada’s largest public foundation exclusively dedicated to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs. 

Ron and Matthew’s commitment to making a difference in our community by promoting awareness of the harsh reality of domestic violence and raising funds to support those struggling to escape it is truly beautiful.  They worked many months to fundraise; every dollar of which has been donated directly to aid the cause of supporting women and children to live violence free.

Matthew and Ron completed an 8 day trek through some of the world’s most rugged terrain.  They crossed mountains, descended steep valleys, and traversed lava fields; all the while tolerating extreme winds, dust storms and uncomfortable temperatures.   Ron shared that the narrow high altitude trails triggered his fear of heights to a point of terror, but that he found strength to continue his journey by focusing on the courage required by women and children to flee domestic violence.

Regina Transition House is extremely grateful to be the recipient of the funds raised by the Pfeifer team.   Thank-you Matthew and Ron!

40th Anniversary Reunion

Thank you to everyone who sent greetings and attended our 40th celebration on October 28th!  It was heartwarming to be in a gathering of so many women and men who were instrumental in making Regina Transition House the organization it is today.

In 1976, Regina Transition House was founded by tenacious and determined women who believed that no one deserved to be abused and that it was possible to make our community a safer and kinder place.  Their efforts resulted in an organization for that has grown over the years, striving to provide the best possible service to women and their children fleeing all forms of violence.

The ongoing success of Regina Transition House is firmly grounded on a passion for positive change and by working within a feminist framework that values the diverse experiences brought to our organization by our employees and volunteers. 

We are proud to work alongside women to facilitate change.  Thank you for supporting our work in your community.

Fearless and generous RBC Volunteer Crew

Thank you to the RBC Royal Bank (Victoria East Branch) volunteer crew who bravely , even in the rain, and facing tent caterpillars and spiders – spent their afternoon cleaning, raking, planting and landscaping for Regina Transition House.  Thank you for your hard work and for your generous donation.
