Changing Our World

Supporters of Big Hill Haven

The efforts to transform the vision of an Emergency Women's Shelter in Cochrane from concept to reality are well under way. But as we move closer to our ultimate goal, we want to take a moment to recognize those amazing businesses and individuals who have so generously committed their funds and/or services to our most recent Fundraising Events 


We ask that you consider supporting these businesses who have stepped up to make a difference. People that are taking a stand against domestic violence to ensure the women and children within OUR community will live free of abuse by providing them with a safe shelter and confidential support services. We're committed to ending the cycle of abuse and violence by raising awareness through prevention, intervention and education.

Rival Boxing hosted their first all-female event on Saturday, April 27th, and even the weather did not stop the crowds from jamming the Lions Event Center to cheer on the ladies. $10,000 was raised for Big Hill Haven. Well done ladies and a huge high five to Rival Boxing for working so hard and training the competitors for such a worthy cause.
