Mudders For Mothers 2017
Redwood Park Communities
Once again, the Mudders for Mothers team will crawl through mud, jump into slush-filled containers and run (twitch) through electrically charged wires. Woohooo!!!
This is the 5th year this team has trained and participated in the Tough Mudder Challenge, all to raise funds for United House:
"United House provides supported transitional housing to women leaving the Barrie Women and Children’s Shelter in our 5 newly-renovated, fully furnished apartments. Usually women who have used up all their allotted time at the women’s shelter are still on the wait list for Rent Geared to Income housing placements. This puts them in the position of choosing between housing they cannot afford, homelessness, or returning to abusive partners. Working exclusively with the transitional support workers at the shelter, we fill this gap in affordable housing, dramatically increasing the likelihood of our clients transitioning successfully out of abuse. At United House women (and their children, if applicable) can stay for up to one year while they wait for RGI housing to become available."
