To mark her 40th birthday, Letitia spent six longs weeks of waking up at 5am every day to ride a 40 km route around Toowoomba. She said she was thrilled to have accomplished both the physical and financial feat.
“I have been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of so many individuals and businesses who have encouraged me along the way, and donated to the cause,” Letitia said.
Along with raising much needed funds to keep the many programs run by City Women going, Letitia was also raising awareness of the most significant issues faced by girls and women in today’s society.
“It was important for me to highlight issues like depression, abortion, domestic violence, and eating disorders, and bring awareness to areas of society that many don’t know about,” said Letitia.
“For example, did you know that in 2012, almost 1 million Australians were suffering from an eating disorder, costing the nation $69.7 billion?”
To inspire women from across Australia to greater influence their world, Letitia said City Women will be hosting an Influencers Summit this month.
“The Summit is about Christian women taking their ordinary and allowing Jesus to make it extraordinary,” she said.
“We are all called to be game-changers in every sphere of influence in today’s world.”
The Summit will feature Sabrina Peters, author of Virgin Diaries, singer and song writer Vita Adams, Rebecca Ronald, one of Australia’s former top young models who now dedicates her time and life to influencing young people, and Fiona Simpson, the most senior and experienced woman in the Liberal National Party.
The Influencers Summit will be held at Rangeville Community Church on Saturday, May 30 from 9am to 3:30pm.
The cost for the day is $50 per person, which includes all sessions & electives as well as refreshments and lunch.
Limited child minding will be available for ages 3 to 5 years only at the cost of $10 per child.
