Run or Walk for Women 2018

Are you still looking for a fun challenge for 2018? Are you passionate about supporting the Women’s Centre? We are looking for fundraisers to run or walk for women in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge on May 27th. Walk 5 km or run the full marathon while raising money in support of the Women’s Centre.

Why Run/Walk for Women?

The Women’s Centre believes every woman deserves to have her basic needs met. Through our Direct Assistance program we provide access to emergency food hampers, personal care items, and hygiene products. We also provide referrals for food, clothing, and other necessities.

By reaching out to your family, friends, neighbours and co-workers to financially support this program you are bringing women in our community closer to thriving and not just surviving in their lives.

Everyone is welcome to participate! If you are unable to run or walk in support of the Women’s Centre but still want to donate to help us reach our goal of $11,000 click here.
