Welcome to My Personal Page!

I am really excited to be participating in the 2018 B&O Yorkville Run to support the Assaulted Women’s Helpline. This will be my first event since joining the AWHL staff in May and a great opportunity to tell everyone I know about the incredibly important work we do and why the Helpline needs your support.

In the 2 short months that I have been with the Helpline I have learned so much about the organization and why the work our crisis counsellors is so incredibly important. We receive nearly 50,000 calls from women in need annually. 50, 000 women in need of emotional support, information, referrals, safety planning. 50,000 women with no one else to turn to.

Everywhere in the news media and across the globe- violence against women has become increasingly prevalent. Think about the traction the #MeToo movement has garnered. 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 support 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!
