Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
I'm participating in the B&O Yorkville Run with a goal of raising $3,000.00 for Victim Services Toronto.
Victim Services Toronto is the only organization of its kind in Toronto, and offers a range of programs and services to assist and support victims in the immediate aftermath of crime and unexpected tragedies.
Recently, Victim Services Toronto provided critical assistance to more than 150 individuals directly impacted by the horrific van attack in the Yonge/Finch corridor. Our crisis counsellors were on scene at the Toronto Police command post within an hour of crime, providing support to witnesses. We had counsellors stationed at hospitals helping families 24/7, and Victim Services Toronto stepped up to administer the first portion of funds raised from #TorontoStrong for family expenses including travel, accommodations, funerals, food, parking, cab fare other incidentals for families sitting vigil with their loved ones in hospital. This is just one example of the critical support Victim Services Toronto provides 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, helping more than 20,000 people each year.
Thank you for your friendship, support and encouragement. I appreciate you and any amount you are able to give to Victim Services Toronto.
