Move with Meaning is an exciting one-day event designed to promote healthy active living, while raising awareness and education about domestic violence, and funds for Haven Society.

During this 4-hour Fitness Challenge YOU will strengthen your body and your community with a 6-instructor master class. We’re thrilled to have some of Nanaimo’s best fitness instructors on board to provide you with an amazing fitness experience.

2017 Event Recap:

WOW! What an incredible day! The goal of this event when I started it was to help the community come together to raise funds for a worthy local cause and have fun doing it. But it’s become something more.

MORE than the money raised was the way this community stepped up and showed their support. Not just financially, but also with their voice.

1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence or sexual abuse. This stat is not ok. I wish we lived in a time where this wasn’t the case but we do. So we need to stand up. We need to raise awareness. And we need to provide education, tools and support to help those who are impacted – women, children and families.

Last year we had 50 participants and raised $9,047.45. On Saturday October 28th we had 100 participants and raised $21,724.25.

An event like this simply doesn’t happen without support. And I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the incredible people and businesses that donated their time, energy, services and products to make this event happen.
