#thatgirl Moveathon

What is it?

What is it?

The first annual virtual #thatgirl Move-a-thon – May 14-24, 2021- walk, run, hike, bike…whatever you like. Online registration opens April 16th. Register, build your pledges and move however you like, whenever you like, alone or in your bubble. Or create a virtual team and rally together to meet your goal. Competitive? Create friendly competition with other teams – it’s a win win. (Don’t worry, the virtual platform allows you to create community, build & collect pledges, and to do your “thing”, all while social distancing).

Why?

We’re raising awareness and funds to help sustain our programs. We’ve been working in York Region (our community) supporting women for over 28 years: 24/7 Crisis Line, Sexual Violence Counselling, Anti-Human Trafficking Counselling & Advocacy, and Public Education.  This year during the pandemic, we’ve also seen a spike in demand for our services; at least 1000 more calls on our crisis hotline.

Who’s #thatgirl?

#thatgirl represents girls and women affected by gender based violence sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, sexual harassment, date rape and human trafficking. Often stigmatized and blamed for the actions acted upon her, she’s seen as #thatgirl, but she could be your sister, daughter, niece, friend…or mother. #thatgirl is Women’s Support Network of York Region’s campaign to raise awareness and funds towards our programs.

It’s been a long winter, and a long pandemic…it’s spring. Time to get out and get moving. Is there a better way to give to yourself and an important cause at the same time?
