July 15th – August 15th, 2023

BWSS Sweat to Support Survivors is a peer-to-peer summer fundraising challenge to get active, boost energy, promote self-care and wellness, and support survivors from all walks of life.

Established in 2020 by a committed community member and supporter, Lucy MacDonald, this event is an incredible way to utilize fitness to take action on relationship violence in your community.

In 2022 we responded to 20,607 calls for help to our crisis line.

Your participation in Sweat to Support Survivors will allow us to stay on the frontline 24/7 to provide crisis support, counselling, support groups, legal advocacy, employment counselling, housing support, outreach, and more.

With reports of domestic and sexual violence against women only increasing, our goal is to raise $50,000 for this campaign, and we need your help to continue to offer these life-saving services.
