Help Jason raise money

For participating in Constantine Yorkville Run

My Story…

This September, Pippa, Zoey, Audrey and I will be participating in the virtual 2020 Constantine Yorkville 5k Run to raise funds for the Assaulted Women's Helpline. Pippa has been a board member of the AWHL for over 5 years. The AWHL is important to me because they ensure that all women across Ontario who are experiencing abuse have someone to turn to. Here are a few reasons the AWHL's need is so great right now: • In the first 6 weeks of the pandemic, calls requesting shelter increased 400%. • In normal times, AWHL receives approximately 4,000 calls per month. In May 2020 counsellors answered 6300 calls and in June that numbered soared to 8,200! • In normal times 3% of calls are “dropped”. These are calls that are unable to reach a counsellor. That rate is now at 18-20% and peaked at 50% at one point during the lockdown. • AWHL is responding to the increase in calls by adding staff to help manage the peak call periods. Thank you


I am running in support of the Assaulted Women's Helpline, a 24/7 telephone crisis line for women who are experiencing abuse anywhere in Ontario to call and speak to a trained counsellor for support and information. 

It's been quite the year for Helpline.  The emergency measures designed to help curb the spread of COVID-19 created dangerous conditions for many women forced to isolate with abusive partners.  Calls increased dramatically.  In one week over 40% of calls received a busy signal.  The Helpline responded by adding more staff.  But increasing staff, means increasing costs and with many other fundraising events being cancelled, the Assaulted Women's Helpline needs your support more than ever to ensure that women in need continue to access the supports they need, when they need them. 

On behalf of the nearly 50,000 women who access the Helpline annually, thank you for supporting my run!
