OCTOBER 20, 2019
Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon
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 October 20 for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon to raise awareness and funds to advance women’s rights.
It is more than just a race, it is a chance to strut you 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.
“As a self-proclaimed fitness enthusiast and an avid (non-elite) obstacle course racer, running with the Crossroads team in the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon provides me with an opportunity to challenge myself and my fitness abilities while raising awareness in my community on the importance and value of the work that we do here at Crossroads. It’s not just another road to another medal. It’s a road that paves the way for a future that we have yet to see – a world where poverty is eliminated, equality prevails and the rights of women and girls are fulfilled.”
– Joanne Singh, Director, Finance and Administration at Crossroads, honorary Run for Women’s Rights chair and Obstacle course enthusiast. She will lead Crossroads team of volunteers, supporters and staff to the finish line.
