Huge thanks to the hundreds of people that made the Walk for Rape Relief such a huge success topping our goal and raising over $40,000. Pledges keep pouring in from all over the world with notes of solidarity.

Teams of supporters walked, biked and strolled the 10K route! And then joined us for a fabulous Indian picnic while listening to the wonderful live local musicians. We took the opportunity to tell Adam Abrams that he has our vote! And we all enjoyed the hoola hoops, pogo sticks and candy galore generously provided by the Licorice Parlour.

All of the funds you helped raise will go directly to assisting women and their children get to safety. The Online Platform will remain open until June 17th. 

It is community support like this from those of you that volunteered, collected pledges and donated that inspires and encourages us to continue our work of ending male violence against women!

On behalf of the 2018 Collective of Vancouver Rape Relief Thank you!!

***********

Welcome to the 2018 Walk for Rape Relief! Join us Sunday June 3rd - the first week end in June.

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. 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.   Over 1,200 new women are assisted through the 24 hour sexual assault crisis line annually. Download a 2018 Walk Info Pack for more details here
