September 26- September 27 2020
Banque Scotia 21k de Montréal
Put on your running shoes to support women’s rights!
Do you want to get moving and run or walk for women’s rights globally?
Join us on September 26-27 for the Banque Scotia 21k de Montreal to raise awareness and funds to advance women’s rights.
It is more than just a race, it is a chance to strut your stuff in support of Crossroads International’s innovative women’s rights programming.
Never has the need of women, girls and youth been more urgent. Extreme poverty exacerbated by a changing climate is resulting in food insecurity, further increasing the vulnerability of the world’s poorest especially women and girls. Together with local partners in Africa we are piloting innovative programs to prevent violence and abuse; create sustainable incomes for women and youth; and empower women to become leaders in their communities.
Run or walk for women’s right with us while having fun-filled and inspiring morning with friends, supporters, volunteers and staff and thousands of other participants from around the world.
“A Casual jogger, but involved socially, this race is a unique opportunity to surpass myself. In addition, it allows me to rally my entourage and promote Crossroads International values, mission and actions. This race will be the opportunity to surpass myself while raising funds to help advance innovative programs that aim to prevent violence and abuse, to support collective and small businesses that generate sustainable income for women, young people in rural areas, and to work in collaboration with women’s organizations to educate girls and women about their rights and help them feel empowered in their communities.”
– Alex Chevalier-Caron, Program Officer – Volunteering at Crossroads, honorary Chair, Run for Women’s Rights. Alex will lead Crossroads team of volunteers, supporters and staff to the finish line.
