Welcome to My Personal Page!
I am participating in the 2018 B&O Yorkville Run to support the Assaulted Women’s Helpline. One of my close friends has been working with this great organization for years, and I decided to do the run this year to support her and the important work her charity does.
The money raised from this event helps fund crisis counselling & intervention, information and referrals, and safety planning to almost 50,000 callers each year – survivors of violence, their friends and families, health and legal professionals, community service providers and those calling on their behalf.
Everywhere in the news media and across the globe- violence against women has become increasingly prevalent. According to Statistics Canada, more than 50% of Canadian women over the age of 16 have been victims of physical or sexual violence- at any stage in their lives. The Assaulted Women’s Helpline are one of many important agencies with unique services working to ensure that when a women needs someone to call for critical support or resources- any time, day or night, they are there.
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in helping to end violence against women. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Assaulted Women’s Helpline money by reducing administrative costs.
Thanks for your support!
