If you were at Mayfair Mall this weekend, chances are you saw Trevor Botkin on display, alongside an assortment of mannequins.
Since 10 a.m. Thursday, he’s been on display at Mayfair Shopping Centre in an effort to raise money on behalf of his charity, HeroWork.
It’s part of a 53 hour challenge, where he’s stood in place at the mall to try and raise $70,000 for this year’s project of giving back to another local charity, Power To Be.
“Every year we do a spring challenge, and the team decided since I like being the centre of attention so much they would put me here, on display…until 3 p.m. today, to raise $70,000 towards critical project delivery — that’s building materials,” said Botkin.
HeroWork is converting an old dairy barn into an indoor programming space that will support Power To Be’s outdoor wilderness programs.
They also plan to build a fully accessible pavilion that’ll increase Power To Be’s program delivery options.
His group has carried out over $7 million in charity transformations over the last 10 years.
