We made it!

Jul 12, 2017

Thank you, runners and donors, for supporting us in the Scotiabank Half-Marathon & 5K this year! We’re thrilled to say we exceeded our goal of $25,000 raised for our organization, going directly to programs and services for women in the Downtown Eastside. Amidst increasing demands for services and rising needs, we’re glad to have dedicated people standing with us, walking and running for us, and advocating support from others. Your energy and persistence are indispensable to all the women who make up our community.

Our celebration fittingly included dancing, decorations, photobooth props, and, of course, delicious food. Thank you to our generous neighbours Joe Pizza, Tuc Craft Kitchen, Birds & the Beets and Nesters’ Market for making our Appreciation Picnic extra special.

Without the help of our tireless staff, volunteers, fundraisers and supporters, we wouldn’t be able to offer crucial services to women in our community. By running for DEWC, you’re extending the family of support and sustaining our ongoing success. We can’t thank you enough!

Missed the chance to run and fundraise for DEWC? It’s not too late: register for the Eastside 10K this September!
