Mimosa Madness Women's Run Charity Event

Thank you to all the ladies who joined us on August 1st for our second Women’s Mimosa Madness. It was pouring rain as everyone arrived, but the sun came out as soon as the run/walk started at 10am! A big thank you to @nadioko for organizing the event and for decorating the taproom with a fun tropical theme. We raised $1,000 for ANOVA London, a charity working to create change to eliminate patriarchal patterns that result in gender-based sexual violence and inequality. It was so much fun to be able to safely host a charity event again at BackRoads for a great cause.

 

About ANOVA:

At Anova, we believe an inclusive world of shared power where everyone lives freely without fear of violence is possible. We are working to create change to eliminate patriarchal patterns that result in gender-based sexual violence and inequality.

We are the product of a merger between London’s Women’s Community House and Sexual Assault Centre London, to provide improved services to our community.

Anova provides safe places, shelter, support, counselling, and resources for abused women, their children, and all oppressed individuals to find a new start.

All of the services available through Women’s Community House and Sexual Assault Centre London are still available with improvements, including improved accessibility, streamlined service, more service options at our four sites, improved services for children, enhanced sexual violence and prevention work for youth, and an integrated 24-hour crisis and support line.

We believe a future without violence is possible.
