For over 40 years Nellie's has provided shelter, dignity & hope to women and their children fleeing violence, poverty, and homelessness. Every day we witness the strength and courage of the women and children who arrive at our doors trying to leave behind lives filled with pain, looking for brighter future. We are committed to effecting change, including removing barriers and improving the conditions that affect women's lives.
Please join "Team Nellies" to walk or run at the 2016 Scotiabank Charity Challenge on October 16. Members of Team Nellie's can choose to run or walk in the marathon, half-marathon, or 5k race. Our goal is to recruit over 50 members and our fundraising target is $20,000. We hope you'll join us this year for Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon as we walk and run to end violence against women. Please invite your friends, or family members & together we can make a powerful Team Nellie's.
The money we raise from 2016 Scotiabank Charity Challenge will directly go to our women's programs. Please join us today to take on this challenge, for yourself and for the vulnerable and children we serve! For each Team Nellie's member, you will receive a free T-Shirt and a water bottle. If you need further information, please contact Shanine at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-461-8903. We look forward to hearing from you, and working together to raise money for the cause.
