Strong Like A Woman
Let us show them how to be Strong Like a Woman!
Women making the 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 1st to November 30th, 2022, Heart Home Network, Discovery House, and Sonshine Community Services will join to create awareness and raise funds with the second annual ‘Strong Like a Woman’ campaign.
What is involved with Strong Like a Woman?
We have partnered with over 10 gyms around the YYC community. You attend a class from the list below, partake in an amazing workout and a portion of the funds are donated and will build awareness of the mission of these three long-term shelters and facilitate our work on ending domestic violence in our communities.
Where can I take part?

Can I donate to the cause outside of the classes?
Yes, we would love to take some donations from you besides attending some classes. Keep an eye out for our TipTap machines where you can donate directly and our physical donation bins located at some of our partnered gyms, your generosity can make an impact in the life of a family fleeing domestic violence.
Last year’s campaign resulted in over $10,000 raised and countless new connections made. Let us make this year even stronger!
