Help Macrina raise money

For participating in Constantine Yorkville Run

My Story…

This money will go towards the Assaulted Woman's Helpline. They offer a 24-hour telephone and TTY crisis line to all woman who have experienced abuse. This type of service is more important now than ever as it's not always safe for everyone to stay at home during this time.


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!
