Because She is Somebody
Indigenous members of PSAC BC are issuing a call to PSAC members, friends, family and allies to join our PSAC BC Virtual Tears to Hope 5K Relay Team. Registrants can do the relay in their hometown or wherever they choose anytime between June 24-26, 2022.
Funds raised in this relay go to the Tears to Hope Society and assist them in meeting their mission of providing a healthy and safe community for Indigenous women and girls, through inclusive activities that encourage health and wellness of the body and mind because ‘She is Somebody’ – this message is important and necessary because disgraceful parts of Canada’s history contributes to the need.
This event is an in-person 10km relay taking place in picturesque northern British Columbia, from Prince Rupert, Gingolx, Smithers & Kitimaat Village, ending in Terrace.
Not in northern BC? No problem! We invite you to sign up for the run and participate wherever you are. Run or walk 5K/10K at your leisure that weekend!
If relays are not your thing, but you would like to contribute to fundraising efforts you may also do that through the PSAC-BC – Race Roster page.
As Indigenous Coordinator for PSAC-BC, I sincerely thank all who join our team in support of the Tears to Hope Society’s fundraising efforts. Their society supports of families of missing and murdered loved ones, as well as residential school survivors. For more information, please contact Jill MacNeill
