BeCause & Effect #34: Kristy McFee

Children, Youth & Families

Kristy McFee gave up her life as a real estate agent, and completely shifted her focus to helping Children, Youth, and Families, through the Manitoba Riding for the Disabled Association. As Executive Director, Kristy fights for inclusion and equality, while giving kids the experience of a lifetime.

Kristy participated in The Winnipeg Foundation’s 2020 Fast Pitch, where she honed her presentation skills and competed against 11 other non-profits here in our city for a 10,000 dollar grand prize.

I sat down with Kristy McFee to talk about her experience with Fast Pitch, the power of inclusion, and her deeply personal connection to the organization that’s helping these kids learn, grow, and live their best lives.
