BENEFITING: Sanctuary for Families
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
On May 1st, 2016, I will ride 40 miles in the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour as a member of the Sanctuary for Families Bike Tour Team, raising critical funds and awareness for their cause. As a social work intern at their Economic Empowerment Program, I know first hand how important the work that we do is. Sanctuary is the leading non-profit organization in New York State dedicated exclusively to serving the complex need of domestic violence survivors, sex trafficking survivors, and their children. For over 30 years, Sanctuary has provided life-saving shelter, legal, counseling, and economic stability services to thousands of survivors. Last year alone, Sanctuary was a lifeline to nearly 15,000 individuals who came to them for refuge and support. The funds I will raise through my participation with our Bike Tour Team will support their many programs, and allow survivors to receive the tools they need to build safe and independent lives for their families.
