The Sea Otters
As some of us know, female sea otters "raft" together in order to keep each other safe and afloat. The perfect metaphor for what we as women can do for each other!
The Sea Otters will join this Virtual Run for Women in support of Stella's Circle. 100% of the registration fee and funds raised will go directly to programs for the women at Naomi Centre (NL’s only emergency shelter for young women), and the Just Us Women’s Centre (providing counselling to women who have had conflict with law, both inside and outside the province’s only correctional facility for women).
As the 5km run (or walk!) is virtual this year, it can be done any time between September 17th and 27th. You can run from anywhere, anytime, but hopefully if Covid-19 resitrictions remain relaxed, we'll be able to run together.
If you cannot run, you can still donate!
Following is the boilerplate info:
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 Stella's Circle.
As many of us are experiencing, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on our mental health. Our local charity needs our help more than ever so that they can continue to provide vital support and care.
100% of the funds raised will go directly to women’s mental health programs in our community. Please consider donating to help us help women in our community access the support and care they need during these challenging times.
To join our team of help raisers, register at runforwomen.ca. 100% of your registration fee will be donated directly to the charity.
