  • JOIN THE 5K WALK FOR WOMEN - SCOTIABANK TORONTO WATERFRONT MARATHON

    Toronto | Dates: 16 – 16 Oct, 2016
    2016 Walk for Women in Toronto

     Join the Cuso International family in celebrating women around the world.


    Walk or run with us along Lake Ontario at Toronto’s Harborfront while meeting people that have been involved with Cuso International. We will be participating in the 5k but we also encourage all those interested in running other races, such as the 10k, half marathon, and marathon to join the team!

    Our Outreach and Partnerships Officer, Tina Sweeney, invites participants to a refreshing brunch at the Centre for Social Innovation after the event on behalf of Cuso International! Details provided upon registration.

    Join our cause:

    Women and men must receive the same opportunities to participate in decisions that affect their lives. Cuso International stands in solidarity with the strong, determined and courageous women who work alongside our volunteers. 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 so much!
