Become a Champion for Survivors and support WAVAW’s Essential Services – May 7, 2020
May 7, 2020
To: All MoveUP Members
To all MoveUP Members,
We are reaching out today to our MoveUP community to ask you to help support your fellow members at the WAVAW Rape Crisis Centre and the work they do to help survivors of sexual assault and sexualized violence.
The cancellation of this year’s Scotiabank 5K and Half Marathon due to COVID-19 means WAVAW has lost its most critical and largest fundraising campaign. They have relied on this event for the last seven years to bring in necessary funds to sustain their operations, and last year raised $70,000 for survivors of sexualized violence.
WAVAW is counting on the generous help of the community, including MoveUP members, to stand up for WAVAW’s essential services by becoming a Champion for Survivors. When you take the pledge, you will join WAVAW’s team of Champions for Survivors in fundraising on your social media channels from June 13 to 30.
This fundraising campaign is accessible to everyone no matter your physical ability or where you live, and it is 100% free-of-charge. WAVAW will support all of the Champions with social media graphics, how-to guides, fundraising tips and tricks, and more.
Fundraising has never been easier. With just a few simple clicks, you can change a survivor’s life.
If you can help support a great cause, you can Take the Pledge now by clicking here!
