Are you interested in taking part in Ottawa Race Weekend on May 26 & 27 (www.runottawa.ca)? Would you like to help students struggling to overcome war and poverty? If so, you can join the Canadian International Learning Foundation (CanILF) Race Team and help educators and students around the world.
When it costs as little as $10 per month to send a student to school, you donâ€™t have to raise a lot of money to make a big difference. Weâ€™re looking for runners to join our Race Team to raise money for scholarships, with the suggested goal of raising $60 per runner.Â These scholarships will be given to students at our partner schools in Afghanistan and Uganda as well as to educators around the world who have joined our Educator Volunteer Network.
CanILF is a volunteer charity that mentors educators and provides student scholarships and educational equipment at partner schools in areas affected by war, illness and poverty â€“ to learn more, click here. Ottawa Race Weekend is the perfect opportunity for runners (and walkers) of all types to get together to raise awareness about this important cause.
Want to join our Team? Then e-mailÂ [email protected] and weâ€™ll provide you with a fundraising and information package that you can send to family, friends and co-workers. Weâ€™ll be holding a post-Race party for Team Members â€“ refreshments included â€“ to thank everyone who took part.
Not a runner? Then come out and join CanILF volunteers in cheering on our Race team!
