Strong Like a Woman

Join the Movement!

Support women and children facing domestic violence.

Sonshine is excited to be participating in the second annual Strong Like a Woman campaign. Witnessing women make a courageous decision to leave an abusive relationship and start rebuilding their lives truly embodies what it means to be Strong Like a Woman.

November is Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta. From November 1 to November 30, 2022, the Brenda Strafford Foundation, Discovery House and Sonshine Community Services will join together to create awareness and raise funds with the ‘Strong Like a Woman’ campaign.

We’ve partnered with fitness studios and gyms across Calgary to make this campaign a success and benefit the women and children facing domestic violence who need our support!
