For the 3rd year, Battered Women's Support Services (BWSS) Sweat to Support Survivors is launching their peer-to-peer summer fundraising challenge to get active, boost energy, promote self-care and wellness, and support survivors from all walks of life.

A choose-your-own-adventure challenge to prevent and combat gender-based violence.

This information session is a free, accessible event for active people of all ages, as well as fitness, yoga, and wellness professionals who are passionate about giving back to their community and offering their clients an opportunity to move, sweat and raise much needed support for survivors of gender based violence and funds for BWSS's essential services.
