In addition to this honour, Kim is able to win a $10,000 donation from Scotiabank for the YWCA through the Connecting the Community Award. This award is to be allocated toward the program area of each Women of Distinction nominee’s choice. There are five program areas in total and Kim is campaigning for Healthy Choices for Youth.
