Welcome to My Personal Page EVERYONE!!!!
I've long been part of this charity... and finally i get to run this race for them! I hope to raise as much as i can for such a great cause in my heart. If you'd like to volunteer for them please let me know and i can send you a contact!
okay now to the regular spiel with some additions......
It's here again! the B&O Yorkville run! This year I am participating to support the Assaulted Women’s Helpline.
The money raised from this event helps fund crisis counseling & 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 and generosity for this amazing cause!
