Q&A with Noel Pang: Interval House's Run Ambassador

Noel is an Interval House Run Ambassador for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. He’ll be running the half-marathon to raise funds for Interval House. We were able to get in touch with Noel, and find out more about why he chose Interval House as his charity of choice.

Why did you decided to run the half-marathon?

The reason I chose the half marathon originally was because I was trying to get my younger sister to start running further distances. So right now she’s running 5 kilometers every few days.

But how do women find Interval House?

Have you ever exhaustively searched for Interval House’s address and haven’t had any luck?

Don’t worry! You are not the only one looking for our address and not being able to find it. In fact we often hear from people who are trying to find our location, but can’t find it on Google, on the phone book, or in our website. No, we do not have a website glitch. We intend it that way; we keep our address confidential.

Meet Shirin: Part 6

Moving out

Recently, we introduced you to Shirin, one of our long-time Women’s Counsellor Advocates. Each month, we’ve been shadowing Shirin to give you an idea of what a day’s work is like as a counsellor at Interval House.

When women move out of Interval House, staff members like Shirin help them to settle into their new homes. While their stay at Interval House is temporary – just an Interval – the support we extend to women and kids doesn’t end on moving day.
