Brave Toronto 2019


We are so glad you were able to join us  

On behalf of all the BRAVE Toronto planning team, we want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who attended the 2019 event.

In total we had 58 girls at the event and know that they left feeling inspired and hope-filled.  Here is what some of the girls told us:

Being brave is being able to look fear in the face and say NOT TODAY. 
When negativity is around you, you tell the person NOT TODAY.
I learned that I am worth it. 
Some people don’t really know who you are as a person, but you should know that you are always worth it and are an amazing person.

We will share official photos and videos from the event once we get them.  In the meantime, you can check out our Instagram highlight reel here, and take a look at our Instagram and Facebook accounts for more from the day.

As Jully Black said, “it takes little bit of crazy to change the world.”  Thank you for being a little crazy with us.
