Virtual walk / run / BIkE fundraiser

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

We all know that the pandemic has impacted us all in one way or another. For some in our communities, neighbors, friends, and those we aren’t even aware of, circumstances are such that they are left in desperate need for support – they are in distress.

Restore Canada has always focused on operating in the margins. Without aid in the form of resource and a clear plan, dire long-term consequences are imminent for those in distress. Our trained Care Planners exist in these margins, ensuring effective allocation of resources that cuts to the heart of the problem providing long-term solutions, effective fund disbursement, but ultimately, hope to those without it.

The “Great Walk for Restore” is a vehicle of care. Your willingness to participate and raise funds, walk / bike / run (virtually, and physically distanced of course!), and come together is the “DO GOOD” needed in our communities. The more raised, the more is available to help!

Who will do more good?

And for even a little bit more fun, we’ve got a little bit of a healthy competition going on: who is gonna have the most participants? We will crown a Community Champion the leader of DOING GOOD! – announced at our closing ceremonies and supported by our local leaders. So, tell your friends, colleagues, neighbours, acquaintances, childhood classmates to get involved!

The Mayor’s Wager

The mayors want to see which community – Markham or Stouffville – can drum up more participants! On behalf of the winning community, the mayor of the other community will donate $1 per participant that registers (and raises a minimum of $50).

LET’S DO GOOD!

We’re hiding the participant numbers now! Who’s gonna win? We’ll announce it on our closing video! STAY TUNED (AND SIGN THOSE PEOPLE UP)!
