Event description

Description

The year's event will raise awareness of the services offered by the Men’s Resource Centre’s and the need to make those services more widely available. As difficult as it is to understand, statistics consistently indicate that at least 1 in 6 men will experience sexual violence before the age of 18, representing approximately 36,000 Winnipeg men who have experienced childhood sexual abuse. We recognize that having the only Emergency Shelter for Men and their children fleeing intimate partner and family violence is essential for our community and we believe that offering our specialized programming has great potential to improve the lives of men and their families. Our programs help youth and men explore and celebrate their strengths, their voices, who they are today, and who they will become.

The Be A Hero Gala will take place on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at The Fort Garry Hotel. At this formal event we will enjoy a served 3 course dinner and be inspired by our guest speaker Sheldon Kennedy as he shares his personal journey of hope, strength, and victory in the healing journey after trauma. There will also be an exclusive cocktail reception invite to meet the guest speaker in person prior to the celebration.

Sheldon Kennedy is a former professional NHL hockey player, playing for the Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins, and Calgary Flames. Kennedy is known for going public as a victim of sexual abuse by his coach and rollerblading across Canada to raise awareness and funds for sexual abuse victims.
