in the Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5k

On Sunday, June 23rd, Battered Women’s Support Services will be participating in the Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5k. We aim to raise $10,000! Please help us make this happen.

One-half of all Canadian women have experienced at least one incident of violence since the age of 16.

Every woman has the right to be safe and free from violence. Each year BWSS answers over 10,000 crisis calls and provides safe space for women where they freely express themselves and find support in their journey. We need your help to raise funds for this essential and critical support for women.

Whether you run a half marathon or walk a 5k, you can ask your family and friends to sponsor you and the money you raise will go to BWSS. Sign up here and raise money by creating your own personal fundraising page which you can e-mail, facebook, tweet and so forth.
