Help Christine raise money

For participating in Constantine Yorkville Run

My Story…

Despite Covid-19 concerns and limitations, new injuries and ailments, I’ve decided to run again for the @assaulted_womens_helpline again this year. It was a no brainer. I haven’t run in what feels like lifetimes. I haven’t needed to. Clients of the Helpline need their services and support now more than ever before. And the helpline needs you. Calls have increased over 400% during the pandemic. I will be running alone on a path of my choosing for a total of five consecutive kilometres. If you’re able to help donate to the Assaulted Women’s Helpline on my behalf and support me in my ongoing efforts to end violence against women, please donate. Every dollar counts. Thank you ❤️ (Yorkville Constantine Run, September 2020).


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!
