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.
This year, the Run to End Poverty (R2EP) will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at Fish Creek Provincial Park, as part of the MEC Race Series.
There are two easy to steps to become a part of this year’s Run:
1) Register for the race through the MEC website
2) Set up your companion fundraising platform page
3) Check out the 10km training plan NCL
Congrats to the ~70 participants in 2015 who raised a combined $18K for EWB ventures!
