Support Opt and Run with us!


Walk/Run 5k or Run the ½ Marathon with us! Get active and support Options for Sexual Health all at the same time!

It is essential that British Columbians have access to sexual health care and services. Last year, Opt saw over 23,750 individuals at our clinics for services like Pap screening, STI testing, and low cost birth control provision; taught over 8000 students comprehensive sexual health education; and answered over 11,000 calls and emails on our Sex Sense line. It takes a lot to ensure that these services remain accessible throughout the province. In order to perform at an optimal level, our programs rely on the generous donations of our members and supporters.

Opt Staff are participating in the Scotiabank Half-Marathon or 5K to help Opt raise funds to support our programs, and we would love to have you join us on June 25th. Donations raised through this event will be put directly back into the communities Opt serves throughout the province. Donate to Opt, and support keeping these services available and accessible in BC!
