The Run to End Poverty (R2EP) is a Canada-wide event with a simple goal: to raise awareness of global poverty issues and generate support for Engineers Without Borders’ (EWB) African Programs.
The annual event brings together a team of compassionate runners taking strides to end extreme poverty. With every dollar raised and kilometer logged, R2EP runners help connect the skills and ambition of our African Partners to real opportunity.
Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and sponsors for a fantastic #R2EP this year! With your support, we raised nearly $2,700, and over $31,000 nationally!
We also conquered over 50 km together. We ran, biked, and yoga’d, some of us in costume too, along with the rest of the EWBers across Canada on the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
