Because we CARE

Hi,

RUN4ACAUSE & CARE Canada have joined forces by participating in the 4th consecutive Walk In Her Shoes relay event on Sunday March 9th, 2014. Supporting women and girls on International Women's Day

Our team  will be participating and running leg#6 and 12km and are raising awareness and much needed funds to empower women and girls around the world to fight global poverty.  Some of us will take part in the food, water, and food carry up the wreck beach stairs in order to better "walk in her shoes" !

In the poorest communities around the world, women and girls are often the ones tasked to collect water, firewood or other basic necessities of life. They walk on average 6 kilometres a day (approximately 8,000 steps) while carrying the equivalent of a suitcase. This leaves little time to attend school, access health services or earn money to support their families, but you can help.

All donations will be leveraged by the Canadian Government 3:1. That means for every $1 - we actually raise $3.

The Walk In Her Shoes 103km relay run has 8 legs and supports 8 integral CARE projects around the globe… and here’s ours….

he CARE PROJECT our team will be supporting is called :

Improved Health and Nutrition for Vulnerable Women and Children. 

Location: Ethopia

Total Impact: 174,580 people. 

 Project: Working with families, health workers and local communities, CARE’s ARNI project in Ethiopia seeks to expand access to a healthy and nutritious diet for mothers and children. 


Thank you,

Because we CARE
