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!
The last year has been a landmark year for survivors of sexual violence. We have witnessed a groundbreaking shift in the conversation: the focus has centered 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.
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.
2017 was, for so many people, a year of anger, sadness, and frustration as it became impossible to deny how deeply sexual violence impacts our society and our lives. We want to make 2018 a year of action: we're seizing this moment and we are not letting go. That's why we're asking the Ottawa community to rally, roll, and raise in our 7th annual 'Break the Cycle' Spin-A-Thon fundraiser!
All of the funds raised will go towards the ORCC’s essential services: providing free, confidential counselling; a 24-7 crisis line; and advocacy support for survivors of sexual violence. All of our services are survivor-centered and now, more than ever, this support is needed in our community.
