We love our running community ! Join our Strava club and become part of a movement to empower women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. As you log your miles, you’re not just running, you’re raising awareness and, hopefully, raising vital funds for the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre’s vital meal program.

Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or a beginner, every step counts towards supporting women’s wellness, safety, and empowerment. Lace up, join our community, and let’s run together for a brighter, more inclusive future!
