Strong Like a Woman Campaign

Strong Like a Woman Campaign

Witnessing women make a courageous decision to leave an abusive relationship and start rebuilding their lives truly embodies what it means to be Strong Like a Woman. November is Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta. From November 1 to November 30, 2021, the Brenda Strafford Centre, Discovery House and Sonshine Community Services will join together to create awareness and raise funds with the ‘Strong Like a Woman’ campaign. With your help, and the fitness studios we partner with, we will make this campaign a success and benefit the women and children facing domestic violence who need our support!

The funds raised from these charity class/es will build awareness of the mission of these three long-term shelters and facilitate their work on ending domestic violence in our communities.

How does it work? We are asking local fitness studios to host one or more classes throughout November, with the cost of the class benefitting the shelter!

The funds raised will:

  • Raise vital supports for trauma-informed counselling, child programming and secure housing
  • Raise awareness around family violence
  • Promote engagement for you and the three long-term women’s shelters in Calgary
