Community Run for the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre

 

Join us for the Second Annual Run To Give YVR in support of the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre (DEWC). Created by passionate runners, our vision is to bring Vancouver's running community together again for one last all-inclusive run of the year for a common cause.

Representatives from the DEWC will be at the event to chat with the group, and we hope to have runners representing all of Vancouver's run crews. 

Run Details

  • Sunday, December 11, 2016
  • 9:00 a.m.
  • Olympic Village Square (map)
  • 8K along the Seawall (check out the route) ... or as far as you want to go!
  • Donate what you can
  • Everyone welcome (runners of all levels, walkers, strollers, wheelchairs, etc.)

Why support?

Founded in 1978, the DEWC is one of the few safe spaces within the Downtown Eastside exclusively for women and their children.

The mission of the DEWC is to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for women from all walks of life, who live or work in the Downtown Eastside. To achieve this goal, the Centre provides supportive surroundings with meals, advocacy and programs which nurture and empower members.

The DEWC depends on the generosity of the community to serve up to 500 women and kids daily. The meals program is the DEWC's most underfunded and important program, as food is the main draw to get many women in the door. Once inside, the DEWC has the opportunity to teach women about other programs and services, and provide access to much more than basic needs.
