International Day of the Girl
Since 2012, 11 October has been marked as the International Day of the Girl. The day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.
Stay tuned for more information regarding local events.
A group of passionate volunteers has brought the Sea-to-Sky community together in Whistler to celebrate the United Nations-recognized International Day of the Girl each year since 2013. The five previous events each motivated and inspired a sold-out theatre of 250 people and collectively raised over $15,000 for charity partners – <http://hswc.ca/> Howe Sound Women’s Centre and <http://www.onehorizon.net/> One Horizon.
Special thanks to the volunteer team that make this happen each year: Maja Ronneberger, Kevani Macdonald, Danielle Kristmanson, and Dee Raffo.
