The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives recently ranked Waterloo Region as the least safe place for women to live in Canada, and our local support services have a 140 person wait list. In response, we developed Race Across Waterloo Region, a multi-sport urban/rural adventure event designed to generate a dialogue around women's safety and to build a community of healing and empowerment.
RAWR is kind of like a scavenger hunt combined with a wilderness triathlon. It's fun, adventurous, and a great way to have a big impact!

Waterloo Region Crossing is a not-for-profit endurance event company.
We coordinate events wherein citizens challenge themselves in extraordinary circumstances
to raise awareness about the most pressing issues facing our community.
We work at the grassroots level, engaging with our fellow citizens and local organizations
to build community with a common goal: to empower each other through understanding,
setting an example as leaders in social compassion and environmental stewardship.
We build proof-of-concept events that can be expanded, replicated, and built upon
to broaden our impact with each successive year.
