Pepi, Gr. 6, and fellow chess champion Ashley (they met at the 2012 Canadian Chess Championships) jointly challenged people to a game of chess at Chapters this weekend.

This was a creative way to raise funds for the “Because I am a Girl” charity. Pepi liked the idea of “real girl power helping real girl power!” They ended up beating the few people that challenged them to a game. Most members of the public wanted to watch the young chess powerhouses in action!
