The Ring Finder's ALISON WALKER wins the "Kelly Shires Award" 2018

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Huntsville, Ontario, Canada

For the last 11 years I have been a participant in the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation Snow Run”. February 4th, 2018 was the 19th Annual Snow Run event. Woman only snowmobiling ride raising much needed donations for this amazing Charity.

Every year I try to think up ways to raise donations to out due my previous years fundraising attempts without asking my dear Friends, Family and Co-Workers every year…


You see…here’s a little bit about the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation….

The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation was established to help women/men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. There are many unforeseen expenses they may face, and which their health insurance program may not cover.

Our mission is to provide financial assistance to women/men in these situations in order to make their fight with cancer a little less challenging.

If you are diagnosed with breast cancer and need our assistance please go to and find out more on how we can help you. Our policy and application for financial assistance can be found under the heading “Need Financial Assistance”. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at

I try my very best….but in 2017 and 2018 I resorted to my metal detecting skills and decided that through my “The Ring Finders” call outs….I’ll use my PASSION & SKILLS for metal detecting and make my “CLIENTS” …PAY-IT-FORWARD!! I ask for my call-out feed to cover my fuel and a meal…then when I recover the clients lost item…I ask them to “PAY-IT-FORWARD” by making a donation through my fundraising page to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation.

I really was blown away as you see my this video (as I was doing a live broadcast) that I won this incredible “Kelly Shires Award” for the most INNOVATED WAY OF RAISING DONATIONS FOR THIS CHARITY!!! Out of the $3,600 donations (my highest amount fund raising in the last 11 years participation) I RAISED $2,600 DIRECTLY THROUGH MY RING FINDERS CLIENTS!!! S-T-O-K-E-D & HONOURED I WAS!! In 2017 I raised $1,850 dollars metal detecting.

Here is the link to the video for the award! I was truly in shock but very honoured;

So…I am heading into my 11th year in participating at the 20th annual KELLY SHIRES BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION!! and again…will be insisting my RING FINDER CLIENTS to “PAY-IT-FORWARD”!!

    I have been reading Alison’s post on FB and looking at her finds and have been impressed by her work. It’s nice to see a successful woman doing metal detecting in a hobby of mostly men. Congratulations on turning your rewards into fundraising effort like you have and congrats on your receiving this award.
