Please consider joining me on The Gals team for the SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women on Sunday, June 23, 2019 at Quidi Vidi. You can walk 5 km or run 5 km or 10 km. If you're not able to participate, a donation would be very welcome. And the swag bag is pretty neat!!
In 2018, the SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women raised $59,000 in support of women’s mental health at Stella’s Circle. In 2019, the funds raised from this fantastic event are going to our Naomi Centre, a shelter for young women aged 16-30, and the Just Us Women’s Centre for women involved in the criminal justice system. Can you imagine being 17 years old and not having a safe place to sleep? Read about what is offered at Naomi and the needs in this 2017 blog posting. http://stellascircle.ca/ourblog/many-reasons-to-run-for-women-at-naomi-centre/
Did you know that the numbers of women involved in the criminal justice system have been increasing for many years? So much so that women are now, at times, having to be housed at Her Majesty’s Penitentiary in St John’s as the Correctional Facility for Women in Clarenville is over capacity. Read about the many issues facing women involved in the criminal justice system and our response from this posting in 2017. http://stellascircle.ca/ourblog/women-in-the-criminal-justice-system-big-need-being-assisted-by-the-run-for-women/
