Scotiabank Charity Challenge

This event is still scheduled to take place.  The race organizers are carefully monitoring the situation and will notify us of any changes.

Join Team WISH in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge on June 28, 2020!

Join our team and run (or walk) the 5K or Half-Marathon on June 28th, 2020 and fundraise for WISH. Whether you’re a runner or a walker, you’ll be joining a group of passionate, like-minded people who care about women who work in Vancouver’s street-based sex trade.  Every single dollar you raise will go directly to helping women meet their immediate health and safety needs, 365 days a year.  You’ll also be providing women access to a host of programs to help them reach the goals they’ve set for themselves: securing housing, getting legal advice, upgrading their computer skills, learning a musical instrument, or getting in touch with their Indigenous culture.

Whether you need fundraising tips, sample emails or social media posts, or just a little encouragement, we’re here to help you every step of the way.
