Run, walk or wheel for Dixon Transition Society to help kids fleeing violence go the distance!
Do you enjoy walks along Vancouver’s glorious English Bay? Or perhaps you’re a seasoned athlete, looking to best your last half-marathon time. Maybe you’re dedicated to ending violence against women and children. Maybe it’s a little bit of everything! Regardless of your motive, we have a spot for you on Team Dixon.
Many of the children who come to Dixon have often witnessed violence, if not directly experienced it. Because of this, we designed a dedicated child support program with their mental and emotional well-being in mind.
Unfortunately, the funding for this vital program is about to be entirely eliminated.
This year, our goal is to raise $20,000 during the Scotiabank Charity Challenge so we can keep the child support program running at Dixon!
About the Event
The Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon and 5K presented by Canada Running Series is a highlight in the city every year. Scotiabank is an amazing community partner that is excited about seeing charities thrive and collective impact happen, so each year they sponsor the event so that charities can recruit teams and carry out peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns. The best part? Scotiabank covers all of the processing and administrative fees for funds raised so that everything you raise or donate goes directly to the need!
2019 Race Date: June 23
Location: Stanley Park
