Get to know Colleen: When asked to dance for the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off 2017, my heart immediately became involved. The staggering statistics of child/youth abuse and the lasting damage it can have deeply touched me for two reasons. Firstly and simply, because I’m a Mom! To hear how child abuse and neglect changes the spirit of child is heartbreaking. Secondly, as the owner of Studio Pilates, I am passionate about mental health and the relationship between mental health and physical movement. My life is dedicated to getting people to move their body for the fitness benefits but also for the brain chemistry magic that happens with physical activity. Children and youth who are victims of abuse need physical, mental and emotional help. CACAC and CASASC along with our many amazing community agencies will help children heal from abuse and become healthy adults.

I am honoured and motivated to fund raise and bring awareness to the critical issues surrounding the well-being of our children.

The Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off (SCDO) is a product of a community that cares deeply enough to step up every year and raise money for worthy causes in our city. The event brings together the professional dance community, business and community leaders and many talented volunteers to stage an amazing, sold out event, build awareness for the groups their supporting, and raise funds that are put to work making a real difference.

The Celebrity Dancers who volunteer their time, energy and fund raising skills are truly special people.  In this series, we’ll get to know each of the them.  Please go online and support their fundraising efforts.

This year all proceeds will go to benefit the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre and the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre.  It’s about Red Deer coming together to Share the Magic!

Homes by 3Leafs showcases the first single family, shipping container home built in Calgary.

Homes by 3Leafs showcases the first single family, shipping container home built in Calgary. The Alberta based company is changing how homes are constructed by transforming recycled steel containers into high performance, energy efficient homes with net zero capabilities.

September 19, 2019, Calgary, AB ​Homes by 3Leafs gave media an exclusive inside look into the sleek, elegant modern two-storey home made from four recycled shipping containers. The home is nestled in the eco-friendly community, Echohaven, in northwest Calgary.

Som Sourachit, C.E.O. of Homes by 3Leafs describes this moment as pivotal. “Our high performance, energy efficient houses reduce waste in landfills by repurposing steel shipping containers into dream homes. The houses have net zero capabilities and are the new blueprint for how we should build while protecting our environment. “

It’s estimated there are millions of shipping containers piling up in landfills worldwide. The repurposed containers make the perfect envelope for a home, and reduce the heavy reliance on trees used for construction. The steel means shipping container homes are sturdier and will last for generations with fewer repairs than traditional stick builds over time.

The homeowner, Jaime Turner, added “This is a teaching moment for my young daughter. We wanted to build a legacy for her. This is our forever home and we know because it’s made of steel it will last for generations, and an added bonus is, we are being good to our environment!”

Homes by 3Leafs is proud to be leading the way in new home construction. Currently, 6 building projects are underway.

About Homes by 3Leafs

Homes by 3Leafs is a global company based in Edmonton and is comprised of a team of architects, construction experts, designers, and engineers with years of experience developing stunning homes. By using shipping containers to build, Homes by 3Leafs is committed to saving the environment. Thousands of containers pile up in landfills unused while forests can’t be cut down fast enough to support the robust construction industry. The company leads the way with cutting edge technology and new innovations to help the world build beautiful sustainable homes to last hundreds of years.

This year, all proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Red Deer River Naturalists, and all clothes that do not sell will be donated to Vantage Community Service’s Street Ties Outreach Centre for youth experiencing homelessness.
Our hope is to grow each year- from our motivation to the final donations, we want this event to be a meaningful one.
