Use your voice. Use your feet. Raise awareness.
SAC Brant’s 5th annual fundraising walk/run takes place Sunday, May 27, 2018. A staggering 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men will experience sexual abuse in their lifetime, and for twenty-five years the Sexual Assault Centre of Brant has been supporting survivors with a 24-hour crisis and support line, counselling, accompaniment and advocacy, and public education and community events.
Lynnsie’s Run is named for Lynnsie Feijo, the Centre’s first public educator and former board president, an avid runner who was dedicated to creating Healing and Change in Brantford and Brant County.
Choose from a 5km or 10km run or a 1km walk along the beautiful Grand River trail system, collect sponsors, and help raise community awareness. All proceeds support survivors of sexual violence through SAC Brant.
When you register online, RaceRoster automatically generates your individual fundraising page, so this year fundraising is easier than ever! If you raise at least $100 your registration fee is waived.
You can join a fundraising team to support the SAC Brant even if you don’t plan to participate in the Run itself.
There are prizes for the most funds raised by an individual and a team so get started now!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Lynnsie’s Run?
Lynnsie’s Run, formerly called The SAC Run, is a 5km/10km charity run or 1km charity walk to raise awareness and funds for the Sexual Assault Centre of Brant. The run is organized entirely by staff and volunteers from SAC Brant.
What run options are available?
You can choose from a 5km or 10km trail run or 1km trail run/walk. The course is flat. Children and strollers are welcome. We ask that slower runners/walkers and strollers stay to the right so runners can pass freely.
What if I don’t like to run?
You can walk, run or a combination, or just come out to cheer on your friends! There is also a silent auction, kids craft area, face painting and t-shirt modifying stations, and Taylor the Turtle will make an appearance! Lynnsie’s Run is for people of all ages and ability levels who want to raise awareness and contribute to their community.
Can I ride my bike or inline skates?
For safety reasons bikes, inline skates, scooters, and skateboards are not permitted.
Can I bring my pet to the Run?
For safety reasons, pets are not permitted at the event. Service animals are of course always welcome.
Will there be food and drinks available?
There is a water station on 5 km and 10 km routes and refreshments are provided to all participants after the run.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever makes you comfortable! Participants receive a SAC Run T-shirt (while supplies last). We love to see lots of purple as it’s the official colour of SAC Brant, and there are prizes for “Best Dressed” and “Team Spirit,” so be creative!
