Scotiabank Charity Challenge
Thanks to everyone who joined us in this year’s Scotiabank Charity Challenge!
With your help, we raised $23,394 and counting for the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre! Your hard work, dedication and generosity directly impact the lives of women in the Downtown Eastside, contributing the most essential of needs. From our entire community and for every woman who walks through our doors seeking shelter and support, our heartfelt thanks.
Fundraising is still open until July 23, so you can still pitch in! Funds raised are primarily for our meal program, which serves upwards of 500 meals every single day. Just $5 covers the cost of a hot meal and access to the centre.
If you missed the opportunity to run in the Scotiabank Half-Marathon & 5K for DEWC, you can still register for the Eastside 10K on September 15, 2018! Get your running shoes on and show East Vancouver some love: support the women of the Downtown Eastside.
Celebrating victories together
After the run, we hosted a joint picnic celebration with our fellow women’s organizations and friends at BWSS, WAVAW, and WISH. A big thank you to Nesters Gastown and Pizzeria Farina for the much-appreciated contributions of pizza, fruit and veggie platters, and water for the festivities.
