Spring has arrived and it’s time to brush off those running shoes! The Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K is just 12 weeks away!
Thank you so much participating in the 2016 Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K. You raised an astonishing $69,000 last year! Your hard work meant that 2,760 hours of crisis line support was provided to survivors of sexual assault. Thank you!
WAVAW began in 1982, when 18 women came together and started a crisis line to ensure that women who survived sexual assault had a safe place to seek support. Today, 35 years later, WAVAW continues to provide crisis line support, but also provides hospital accompaniment, court and police accompaniment, counselling, and public education that challenges rape culture.
Women choose a variety of steps in their healing journeys and no matter what steps they choose, women should receive exactly the type of support they need, when they need it.
We’d like to ask you to join us again at the 2017 Scotiabank Half-Marathon & 5K to make women’s healing possible.
Sexual assault services change women’s lives. You can too.
