Who are we supporting this year?

Your donation will benefit Minwaashin Lodge, a charity organization in Ottawa that provides support and services to Indigenous women and children who are survivors of violence.

Please make your donation HERE.
Any amount is appreciated. Tax receipts available immediately for donations over $3.

Thank you for supporting Minwaashin Lodge!

What are we doing together?

Here at Brain Freeze, we believe exercise improves physical and mental health.
This year, we will move together to reach 1 million steps! (although we are apart!)
May the steps you take be symbolic of the steps that the Indigenous community at Minwaashin Lodge are taking to recover from violence.
