BENEFITING: Vancouver Urban Ministries

EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2017

THE STORY:

We believe that every child deserves education.


We have a dream that together we can give little children with learning challenges a genuine opportunity to grow intellectually and emotionally, develop healthy outlooks in life, and reach their fullest potential. Our aim is to help break the cycle of poverty for some of the most vulnerable families in East Vancouver, using the power of education.


If you and your friends are passionate about bringing the gifts of knowledge and education to the children in Downtown Eastside Vancouver, why not walk for us


On September 23rd, 9AM to 1PM, Vancouver Urban Ministries is hosting the Walk of the Children 5K Fundraising Walk at Deer Lake Park, Burnaby. We hope to raise $10,000 to fund our tutoring and music program for the upcoming year. Whether you are a solo fundraising warrior, or a team of fighters for justice, we want to include you in our mission to make education accessible, easy and fun for every child in the Downtown Eastside Vancouver.
