KidSafe Team of Heroes - BMO Vancouver Marathon

KidSafe Team of Heroes - BMO Vancouver Marathon

About This Campaign

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!
The KidSafe Project Society

Campaign to Support The KidSafe Project Society

KidSafe keeps school doors open in Vancouver during those times when schools are traditionally closed such as Spring, Summer, Winter breaks and after school. KidSafe offers a familiar place of safety, nutritious meals, emotional support, and positive activity alternatives for 450 children, aimed at helping them build confidence and self-esteem, while providing them with opportunities for social development.
