We're excited to be joining thousands of walkers and runners across Canada in the first ever virtual Run for Women, brought to you by the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart™ program raising help for women’s mental health programs at BC Women's Hospital.
The SOLE SISTERS is a team made of the amazing women in our family - including our STRONG, SMART, SILLY, SWEET grandma (Amma), cousins, sisters, sisters-in-law, aunts, girlfriends, and moms!
100% of the funds raised will go directly to women's mental health programs in our community, specifically to the BC Women's perinatal substance use programs. Innovative mental health research and resources will support the best possible outcomes for women and newborns.
In addition, we will be donating to the BC Women's Holistic Indigenous Health Program Fund and Black Women Connect Vancouver.
The Holistic Indigenous Health Program Fund is an initiative that aims to “deliver weekly cultural programming for Indigenous patients, supporting the spiritual and emotional aspects of holistic healthcare.” More information on this program can be found on the BC Women's Foundation website: www.bcwomensfoundation.org/initiatives/indigenous-womens-health
Black Women Connect Vancouver is a “collective of women who come together to inspire, empower, leverage strengths, and embrace diverse experiences. A community to build meaningful relationships and celebrate the beauty of black womanhood. This kind of support will help you feel empowered, connected, and all while learning diverse information in the process.” More information on this organization, their events, and how to support: blackwomenconnectvancouver.com
Please consider donating to help us help women in our community access the support and care they need during these challenging times, and in the future.
