CECI will be participating in this year's Scotia Bank 21K de Montréal et 5K being held Sunday, April 29th at Parc Jean-Drapeau. This is both a 5 km walk and / or run and a 21 km run (two distinct races that take place the same day).
The Race is open to both runners and walkers. Primarily a fundraising event, we hope that participants get their friends to encourage and support them.
Here is the website for the race. You can choose CECI from a list of organizations to benefit from your fundraising.
CECI is an international development organization that has worked to reduce poverty in the world for over 53 years. We support the men and women in countries where we work (19 in total) to build fair and equitable societies.
The donations raised will allow us to complete our projects around the world - whether supporting the development of a socially responsible tourism economy in Haiti, coffee cooperatives in Latin America, organizing women producers of Shea butter and rice in West Africa or farmers in Nepal, any donation made will make a difference and contribute to the CECI mission of changing lives!
TAKE PART IN THE RACE! RUN FOR CECI! CECI NEEDS YOU!
