Vancouver Rape Relief Walkathon
10:30 am - 2:30 pm
Come walk for Vancouver Rape Relief and ending violence against women. Rape Relief is a 24/7 Vancouver Rape Crisis Centre and Women’s Shelter. The Walkathon is one of Rape Reliefs biggest fundraisers and has been going on for the last 36 years. Participants collect donations and then gather to walk around the Stanley Park seawall. Afterwards, Rape Relief provides a free luncheon and live entertainment.
The funds raised help Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter continue to provide free, essential services to women and their children from across the Lower Mainland and beyond who are escaping male violence. The support of many donors like you make it financially possible to offer refuge to approximately 120 women and their children each year in the transition house. Around 1,200 new women have been assisted through the 24 hour sexual assault crisis line annually.
When: Sunday, May 31st – Registration & Coffee at 9:30 | Walk begins at 10:30
Location: Ceperley Park in Stanley Park – Busses #5, #6, and #19 will drop you close to the park.
