Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5 K

DEWC staff, sponsors, supporters, and volunteers at the 2016 Scotia Charity Challenge

We can’t believe it’s already over! Thank you to the runners, sponsors, and volunteers who supported the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre (DEWC) in this year’s Scotiabank Charity Challenge. With your help, we raised over $16,000 to support women in need.

Didn’t get to donate? The event might be over, but it’s not too late to do your part! Donations will be accepted on our fundraising page until 5:00PST on July 25th, 2016.

Help us raise the bar!

Since 1978, the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre has provided a safe space for women and children in the Downtown Eastside. We provide practical support, basic necessities and hot nutritious meals to over 500 women and children every day. We support women to make positive changes in their lives by connecting them to a continuum of services including outreach, advocacy, wellness, recreation, housing and skills development.
