'Break the Cycle' Spin-A-Thon
Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre
Our total goal for this years' Spin-A-Thon is $25,000, and we are asking our dynamic spinners to come together to raise $17,500 of that goal!
Last year was another landmark year for survivors of sexual violence. The conversation continued to focus on survivors' voices, on our stories, and on our strength. Millions of people across Canada and around the world are speaking out against sexual violence in all of its forms. But we have also seen backlash, burnout, and more violence as the weight of changing the world was once again placed unjustly on the shoulders of survivors and marginalized folks.
In this social and political climate, ensuring continued survivor-centered and confidential support is crucial. As the conversation grows, we've seen a significant increase in demand for ORCC's services. All of our services remain free of charge for survivors seeking support.
In 2018, survivors, activists, and advocates fought to keep the conversation about sexual violence in the spotlight, and to include and amplify the voices of all survivors. In 2019, we want to make it clear to Ottawa and the world that this is far from over. That's why we're asking the Ottawa community to rally, roll, and raise in our 8th annual 'Break the Cycle' Spin-A-Thon fundraiser!
