Take Back the Night Fundraiser (A Virtual Fitness Challange)
April 1 - April 30$30.00
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). This year’s theme is “We Can Build Safe Online Spaces.” Sexual harassment, assault, and abuse can happen anywhere, including online. As we connect online— whether in workspaces, classrooms, or social media platforms—we can learn how to practice digital consent, intervene when we see harmful content or behaviors, and ensure that online spaces are safe and respectful.
Locally, AWARE, Inc. will be hosting a virtual fitness fundraiser sponsored by Henry Ford Allegiance Health that will run April 1 – 30, 2021. The mission is a total of 33.5 miles, and you have until April 30th to complete your journey. Miles can be tracked by any of the following exercise activities: steps, running, walking, cycling, swimming, rowing, elliptical, skiing, or wheelchair. You can track your activity on the website once you create an account manually or you can connect one of the following devices to automatically track it for you: Fitbit, RunKeeper, Strava, UnderArmour or Connected Fitness Garmin.
As a special thanks everyone who signs up will receive a teal ribbon pin that you can proudly wear showing your support of survivors. We encourage you to take a picture and post to social media with the hashtag #SAAM2021 and to tag AWARE in the post. The first 10 people to complete the mission will receive a complimentary glow in the dark Take Back the Night T-shirt. The cost to join is $30 per person. Funds raised will be used to support the operating costs to implement sexual assault services. Services include legal advocacy, emergency shelter, counseling, and accompaniment during a medical exam.
Register on the AWARE website and the link to set up your online profile will be sent to you on March 31st.
