OPIC’s Pork for a Cause Hog Jog is a 3.5km run/walk and 10km run held each year during the Ontario Pork Congress.
Hog Jog 2017 will provide needed funds to support Optimism Place Women's Shelter and Support Services.
Optimism Place is a Perth County shelter for women who are suffering abuse of any kind: physical, sexual, emotional or mental. Located in Stratford, it serves as a refuge for women and their children seeking to escape violence and abuse, where they can obtain professional help in a secure and confidential setting. Funds raised this year will help Optimism Place purchase a new van – to provide reliable transportation for local and rural women to get to the shelter as well as court meetings and other professional meetings. The new van will also provide safe transportation to and from school for the children living at the shelter.
