LOOKINg FOR GYMS AND STUDIOS!

 

Do you run, teach at, or go to a gym or fitness studio? We're looking for gyms and/or studios to partner with for our Strong Like a Woman campaign in November! We are seeking community-minded gyms to donate a portion of proceeds from a class to Discovery House.

Women who make the courageous decision to leave an abusive relationship to start rebuilding their lives embody what it means to be strong like a woman. Did you know that the Calgary Police respond to 2 domestic violence-related calls every hour of the day? November is Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta and in our mission to end domestic violence, Discovery House, Brenda Strafford Centre and Sonshine Community Services will join forces to create awareness and raise funds for the ‘Strong Like a Woman’ campaign this November. 

 

With your help, from November 1 to November 30, 2021, these three long-term women’s shelters are partnering with fitness studios, who will run a "Strong Like a Woman" class to raise both awareness of family violence and the much-needed funds to support the women and children affected. These shelters offer a continuum of care and a safe space for women and children to live away from their abuser so they can begin to rebuild their lives.

 

hOW DOES IT WORK?

  • A studio promotes the campaign at their location and social media channels, raising awareness around family violence 

  • They host one or more classes throughout November 

  • Our team promotes the studio and class through our social media channels! 

  • The funds raised will support families to get back on their feet as they heal from domestic violence.  

 

If you know of a studio that would be willing to partner with us on this initiative, please reach out to Tara at donate@discoveryhouse.ca
