Virtual Run/Walk Fundraising Campaign

To close the summertime and welcome the Fall season, IWS organized a virtual fundraising walk/run campaign that took place between October 3 – 11, 2020. The main objective of the campaign was to raise funds to support operations, outreach and develop new programs. We opened the campaign walk or run-in different cities across Canada. To offer the opportunity for everyone to participate and contribute, the campaign extended over a week. We asked our participants to choose any day and time that is suitable for them between Oct 3rd -11th.  During our campaign week, we aimed to reach a total of 5,000km. 

The campaign was a great success and we were able to reach many people residing in different cities across Canada. At the end we received a grand total of $911.38 that will be spent on the following activities:
