In this 2013 Fall running group, we partnered up with Mission Possible , a Christian humanitarian agency located at Vancouver down town east-side that transforms lives by helping those challenged by homelessness and poverty achieve a renewed sense of dignity and purpose through meaningful work. In an effort to make a positive social impact in the community, I Will Run for a Good Cause encouraged all of its participants to provide a donation receipt from Mission Possible as registration fee, while the program itself continue to remain free of charge. Together, we raised over $600 for Mission Possible! http://www.mission-possible.ca/news/i-will-run-for-a-good-cause
In the upcoming 2014 Winter running programs starting on Jan 25, we will continue to make a positive social impact in our community through supporting Mission Possible and also an urgent global matter to support World Vision in their work to aid and restore the lives of the typhoon victims living in the Philippines. Let’s do this soon as our Canadian government will match up with our donation 1:1 until mid-Dec, 2013.
Let’s run for a good cause. The cost of the program is your time, commitment and effort as well as a donation receipt of a minimum $50 from either/both of these charitable organizations.
Learn to run for free; make a positive social impact; and, live a healthier life. Plus, a chance to win a pair of Skechers runners (over $100 value).
