Run/Walk with Asia Initiatives at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront 5k!
Sun, October 16, 2016, 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
Please come join us at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Run to help a woman rise! At Asia Initiatives, we believe that every woman deserves a quality of life that allows them to reach their highest potential. 100% of the funds raised will go to the Ruaab women artisans group in Delhi. Each Ruaab member earns Social Capital Credits (SoCCs) for improving her embroidery skills, vaccinating children, and sending them to school. These earned credits can be exchanged for school fees, LED light, radios, embroidery kits, and school supplies. Your contribution will help to provide additional resources to the women in this group who are actively working to improve the lives of their children and their communities.
Please reach out to your friends, family and colleagues to help to sponsor your run with a goal of raising $250! They can help to sponsor your run here.
The 5k race begins on Lake Shore Boulevard West of Ontario Drive and ends on Bay Street next to Old City Hall. You may find information on the 5k course map here! A t-shirt from Scotiabank and Asia Initiatives are included with your registration; AI staff will be available at the start line with bags to store any items that you may have. Breakfast will be served at the finish line!
