  • Join the Walk For Women - Scotiabank Vancouver Marathon & 5K

    Dates: 26 Jun, 2016

    Vancouver
    Walk (or run) with us in Vancouver this spring while raising funds for Cuso International programs that support women and children. 

    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. That is why we are walking (or running) in support of all the strong, determined and courageous women whose lives we are helping to change every day. All funds raised through this event will support projects that create brighter futures for women around the world.

    As an added benefit, every $1 raised will be matched 9 times by the Canadian government. That means each dollar has the power of $10! Your dollars and efforts mean more!
