Walkathon for Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter
9:30 am - 2:00 pm
The Walk is a fun fund-raising event that we’ve held annually since 1979. Participants collect donations and then gather to walk around the Stanley Park seawall on the last Sunday in May. We provide a free luncheon and live entertainment at the end.
By asking the people that you know to pledge you to do the Walk you are asking them to actively support you walking towards a world without violence! 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 women have been assisted through the 24 hour sexual assault crisis line annually.
See you on the last Sunday in May – rain or shine at Ceperly Park near Second Beach!
