For over 40 years Nellie's has provided shelter, support & hope to women & their children fleeing violence, poverty & 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 a brighter future. We are committed to effecting change, including removing barriers and improving the conditions that affect women's lives.
Please join "Nellie's Team" to walk or run at the 2015 Scotiabank Charity Challenge on Sunday October 18. Members of Nellie's Team can choose to run or walk in the marathon, half-marathon, or 5K race. Every team member who commits to fundraising a minimum of $250 is eligible for a free race registration (value $40-$80 will be refunded if you reach your fundraising target). Our goal is to recruit 40 members and our fundraising target is $20,000. We hope you'll join us this year for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon as we walk, run, and roll to end violence against women. Please invite your friends, colleagues and family members; together we can make a powerful Nellie's Team. The money we raise from the 2015 Scotiabank Charity Challenge will go directly to our women's programs. Please join us today to take on this challenge, for yourself and for the vulnerable women & children we serve!
Each Nellie's Team member will receive a free Nellie's T-shirt and Nellie's water bottle. If you need further information, please contact Janna at firstname.lastname@example.org or Amran at email@example.com or 416-461-8903. We look forward to hearing from you!!
