KidSafe Team of Heroes - BMO Vancouver Marathon

KidSafe Team of Heroes - BMO Vancouver Marathon
On Sunday, May 4th, 2014, runners from all over the world will take part in Vancouver's most historic run, the BMO Vancouver Marathon. As one of this year’s ten official RUN4HOPE charities, KidSafe invites participants to run on behalf of the 450 vulnerable inner-city children KidSafe will serve this year. Since we work with inspirational children every day, we took a play from their book and decided to DREAM BIG. Our dream is that our team becomes 100 runners strong, each raising funds for vulnerable children in East Vancouver. KidSafe operates free of charge to vulnerable children and their families. Be part of a team that provides: NUTRITIOUS MEALS AND SNACKS VAN & WALKING SCHOOL BUS PICK-UP/DROP-OFF SERVICES SAFE, SUPPORTIVE & FUN PROGRAMMING (on-site activities & field-trips!) To register, visit the BMO Vancouver Marathon website, and choose from three different race lengths: 8km, half marathon (21.1km) or the full marathon (42.2km). After choosing the route, choose KidSafe as your RUN4HOPE charity, and become one of KidSafe's Team of Heroes!

  • Running for Kids

    Gerhard Maynard

    On May 4th I'll be lacing up my runners to run for kids in Vancouver's inner city. As the Executive Director of The KidSafe Project Society I work everyday with my team to support the most vulnerable children and families in Vancouver. KidSafe was founded by a group of caring, concerned citizens 20 years ago, who recognized the immediate and serious need for vulnerable children in our shared communities to have a safe place to go when school is closed. Today, 20 years later, the need for our programs is as strong as ever, and we continue to rely on caring individuals and corporations in our community to bring our programs to life each year. 1 in 5 children in Metro Vancouver live in poverty. This translates to approximately 77,000 children. Please help by donating to my run and help me raise much needed funds for kids in your community.

He lived a long and prosperous life, travelled the world and always lived life to the fullest with a positive attitude. He got to spend his final time with the ones he loved and has now gone to a better place and will watch me on May 4, 2014 run the 8K race for both KidSafe and in his memory.

    Ashish Marwaha

    I was approached by Gerhard ,executive director for Kidsafe, to try to put together a running team for the BMO marathon. I have had a long tradition of raising money through collaborating with various community organizations in Vancouver to help them fundraising through events that are volunteer run and organized and all proceeds go to the charity. It is exciting to get involved with KidSafe and in a new forum for fundraising through putting together this team to run for the charity. All for an excellent cause. Our team is made up from some willing volunteers who are all generous souls- who hail from various walks of life. Some from the children's hospital and other friends who have always supported charitable endeavors in the past and some that just love to run. Help support us support Kidsafe this year and raise as much money as possible for these kids who really need our help and support.

    I am currently a Teacher Candidate pursuing my Bachelor of Education at the University of British Columbia in the Social and Emotional Learning cohort. I am passionate about working with children and am inspired by the KidSafe project. I ran my first half-marathon last August and wanted to challenge myself to complete another this year; however, this time I wanted to run not just for myself but as a way to raise funds for an amazing organization. KidSafe is an extremely valuable project that provides opportunities to the most vulnerable children in Vancouver who may not have these opportunities otherwise. It is my goal to do everything I can to raise as much as possible for each and every child that is a part of the KidSafe project! Every step counts and I will do my best to spread awareness about KidSafe while raising money for them! Thank-you for visiting my page. Every dollar helps and I appreciate any support! Together we can make a change.

A place where they learn, play, eat, make friends, discover role models, develop life-long social skills, and find help if a crisis arises. We want to help where we can, even if it's just a little, in giving children a better life. So this is our contribution. Thank you.

    The reason we chose Accomplishment is that for many of our team mates, this will truly be something that they can be proud of achieving and celebrate together on May 4, 2014. This is Canada's largest International Marathon and dedicates it's cause to raising funds for community good through RUN4HOPE. We are a team that is comprised of mostly previous non-marathon runners....or even runners at all for that matter!!!! We have the support of a couple experienced runners that have joined us as the experts to help the team with motivation and tips to ensure a successful day for everyone. On top of the individual and team race accomplishment we are striving for, we have chosen the Kidsafe Society as our local charity because of what they have been able to accomplish. The support of 450+ vulnerable children annually is a massive success and wouldn't be possible if not for the funding and volunteer activity of many individuals, corporate groups, and events such as these. We are proud to support such an amazing charity in their accomplishments as we strive towards our own. EVERY ACCOMPLISHMENT STARTS WITH THE DECISION TO TRY!!!!
