The Bee Happy Foundation strives to help women and children who are victims of domestic abuse. In partnership with the running clothing line, TobeeBrand, donations and earnings will be given to charities that help the victims of domestic abuse. Why running? Because running is a proven relief from the stress and anxiety of everyday life, even for those living an abuse free life. The benefits of running for mental health are instantly evident, not least as a temporary relief from the prison of domestic abuse that so many women and children suffer.

This includes any violence or abuse between those of age 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of their gender or sexuality. Domestic abuse covers a range of types of abuse, including, but not limited to, psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional abuse.
