Welcome to my fundraising page for the Amazing Race Niagara! On Sunday, September 13, 2020, I will be participating in this event to raise funds for Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara.  Support me in this event to increase child abuse prevention, awareness & response in Niagara.

Imagine the courage it takes for a child to disclose abuse experiences to adult authorities, when 80% of alleged perpetrators are known by children. Studies found that sexual abusers come from a wide circle of people (not only within the family) but also outside the family, such as friends, neighbours, and peers (Kingsley and Mark 2000; LaPrairie 1995).

Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre is a safe place to help, heal and end child abuse for Niagara’s children & youth who have been physically abused, sexually abused, become the targets of internet luring, or were the unwilling witness of violence. Children speak about their abuse experience to specially trained teams from Niagara Regional Police Service & Family and Children’s Services Niagara. Counselling is provided at no cost and without a wait list through Family Counselling Centre Niagara. Opened in 2008, Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre is a registered charity that serves Niagara’s 12 municipalities, helping children and families cope with the life-altering impacts of child abuse

Did you know that 1 in 4 children will experience sexually based child abuse before the age of 18. You can "Be a Hero just for one day" and let children, youth & their families impacted by abuse in our region know you care!

Sponsor me in this fun event and support the important work of Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara at the same time! Thank you in advance for your support.
