Knock Down Stigma Bowl-a-thon
November 4, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$50
Join the Peel HIV/AIDS Network for our second annual Knock Down Stigma Bowl-a-thon fundraiser! We will be meeting at Brunswick Zone Bramalea Lanes to help support vital programs and services for the people and communities most affected by HIV. This year’s Knock Down Stigma campaign also aims to raise awareness about the stigma facing many of our communities.
The impact of stigma can be devastating for people living with HIV, 2SLGBTQ+ communities, racialized communities, substance users, those with mental health issues, and sex workers. The stigma that follows people living with HIV has been described as the single most critical barrier to curtailing the HIV epidemic. HIV-related stigma adversely affects HIV prevention, rates of new infections, access and adherence to treatment, and access to social and practical supports.
We raise awareness about stigma in the hopes of encouraging community members to access the services, tools, and knowledge that are critical to the work of reducing stigma in our communities. With your support, we will build communities that are stronger and more inclusive, and futures that are better and brighter for community members.
The minimum fundraising amount is $50. As a Bowler, your registration will include:
- Bowling lane rental
- Bowling shoe rental
- Aerobic Hip Hop Warm Up
- Family-friendly activities
- Fabulous prizes for our all-star bowlers and top fundraisers!
