How About A Walk?
The Reigning Roses Walk is Rose Haven’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Each Mother’s Day, more than 500 participants are treated to a reception with live music, food, mimosas and a photobooth before setting off for a 5K stroll through NW Portland’s Alphabet District. As we tote our matching Rose Haven umbrellas, we raise funds and awareness for women and children in our community who are experiencing poverty and intersecting issues such as abuse and other health disparities.
Rose Haven breaks the cycles of homelessness and abuse by providing meals, clothing, first aid, mailing addresses, hygiene, restrooms, and showers as well as education and one-on-one advocacy. By building trust and meeting basic needs first, we empower women to explore long-term change.
Gather some fellow Nasty friends and create online teams. Ask your community to sponsor you on the walk to help raise $150K by Mother’s Day. 100% of the funds from this event go to supporting Rose Haven‘s programs.
The Reigning Roses Walk is on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 13th.
Bring your Mom!
