Team Child of Mine - BMO Vancouver Marathon Fundraiser

Team Child of Mine- BMO Vancouver Marathon Fundraiser (walk/run 8km, half, or full)

On May 5th, 2019 a team of runners and walkers will be participating the BMO Vancouver Marathon (8km, half, or full) in partnership with Child of Mine. Their purpose as a team is to raise money for a new boys dorm at one of the children’s homes in Northern India! Currently, the boys are living in the original 100 year old buildings that were on the property when the home was established in 1989 and providing them with a new dorm has been a dream the staff and children have held for many years.

You are invited to embark on this journey alongside Team Child of Mine and run, walk or donate to help create a new and much needed living space for these boys. By signing up, you will be provided with a training plan, a training group (for those in Kelowna) and encouragement along the way. If you are not in the Kelowna area but would like to participate, we would love you to join us too! Simply get in touch with the team coordinator, Al (details below) and he will help you connect.

A Canada Helps fundraising campaign has been started with a team goal this year of $30,000. Last year $25,000 was raised through the generosity of partners like you! Thank you!

Please consider financially supporting our team again this year as they put their best foot forward and run or walk to help this long awaited dream of a new boys dorm become a reality!
