You registered, you fundraised, you showed up and showed your HOPE in Action. Across Canada, in June, our Chapters got active in our largest fundraiser of the year. With over 200 participants running, biking, walking, dancing, and working out, we raised $48,000 to go towards HOPE worldwide Canada programs across the country.
Our Calgary Chapter put together an “Amazing Race” inspired by the show, that started at the Calgary Central Public Library. The Chapter runs the #yycstreetfridge program that helps people experiencing homelessness an
d food insecurities. They raised funds towards creating a youth center in Calgary to support young people in the community.
Zumba Zumba Zumba
An incredibly fun and effective way to get active. Our Chapters in Montreal and Winnipeg tapped in and got moving as they followed Zumba instructors. Our Montreal Chapter raised money to support their programs to provide free French lessons to people who newly arrive Quebec, families going through times of need and those fleeing the war in Ukraine.
Going The Distance
Various Chapters including Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Halifax, and Vancouver help 5K walks/runs. The funds raised from these distance activities are going towards helping those affected by the war in Ukraine as well. We went the distance physically with the goal of going the distance in our support for our neighbours.
Our Newest Chapter Reached Their Goal
As we celebrate our Chapters efforts, we cannot go without giving a special shout out to our Chapter in Newmarket, Ontario. After starting with us this year, they were able to raise enough funds to reach their goal in order to give to their community. They made a particular note on supporting single mothers in their own times of need.
