This fall, Cuso International invites you to Walk for Women. In order for international development to achieve positive lasting change, women and men must receive the same opportunities to participate in decisions that affect their lives.

On October 18 we will be walking the 5k event during the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in support of all the strong, determined and courageous women whose lives we are helping to change every day. Join us and raise funds in support of inclusive community, health and livelihood development projects for women.

This is an excellent opportunity to get together with like-minded individuals and share your stories of impact, influence and change.

The event starts at 8:00 a.m., and should take about 1 hour. Join us for a post-walk brunch nearby.

All funds raised through this event will support projects that create brighter futures for women around the world.
