On June 26th, 2016 our team came together, for the fourth year, to run and walk for a cause, to end violence against women and girls. Congratulations to all who crossed the finish line for Battered Women’s Support Services –the weather was beautiful, spirits were good, and the energy was high!
Our Team and donors made this year’s Scotiabank Charity Challenge so successful for BWSS!
The commitment from our amazing team and the support from donors played such an integral role in helping us raise an outstanding $30,185 this year as a featured charity in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge! These funds will be used to provide more women and girls with free and specialized support programs and services and help us to continue building awareness and action for a safer community!
Although the run/walk is over, you still have a chance to show your support until July 25th! 100% of the collected donations made through the official Scotiabank Half-Marathon and 5K run/walk page go directly to BWSS.
Join us as we celebrate our, runners, walkers, donors, volunteers, and staff, achievement in surpassing our fundraising goal at the Scotiabank Half Marathon & 5km! The celebration will be held My Sister’s Closet (1092 Seymour St., on corner of Helmcken, Downtown Vancouver) on Tuesday, July 26th from 6:30pm-8:00pm. Refreshments, tasty snacks, and fun to be had – please RSVP with, Samantha, at 778-996-5451 or at Samantha@bwss.org.
