SHADE 5K is SHADE's 2nd annual Run / Walk event. Last year we did a virtual SHADE 10K. This year will be held in Assiniboine Park on September 18th from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. There will be gift bags to the first 50 who complete the walk. To register, go to www.shadewinnipeg.org and go to the Events tab.
All money raised is going to fund S.H.A.D.E. (Safe Housing And Directed Empowerment) Inc.'s programming for immigrant and refugee women and their children in Winnipeg who have been impacted by domestic abuse / family violence.
We offer 3 programs:
1) MIRRORS, A Reflection of Immigrant Women Building Healthy Relationships - this is a 10-week workshop program;
2) DIRECTED EMPOWERMENT - this is one-on-one services, such as psychosocial counselling, financial help, legal information and advocacy work, education and employment, and more;
3) EMBRACE: Immigrant Women Building Resilience Together - this is an outcome from the MIRRORS program, that offers group support and workshops on parenting, tenant rights and responsibilities, goal / career planning, computer skills training, how to manage and cope with current struggles, money management, planned family activities, and more
We look forward to your generous support,
