CECI Charity and Sport Challenge 2024 - For women's rights and leadership

Event | April 20 2024 | Canada

As part of the celebrations for our 65th anniversary, join us for the next edition of the CECI Charity and Sport Challenge. 

On April 20, 2024, friends of CECI will gather at Parc Jean-Drapeau to run 5, 10 or 21 km in support of our sustainable development projects around the world. The event aims to raise funds to support women's leadership in vulnerable communities, so that women and girls can take their place in climate change adaptation, school access and entrepreneurship. By becoming inspirational leaders, they contribute to the development of their families and communities, and pave the way for social change.

 How to participate in the CECI Charity and Sport Challenge?


  1. Fill out the registration form. Registration fees are covered, and we'll set up your online fundraising page.
  2. Personalize your fundraising page by adding a photo and the reason why you’re participating in the Challenge.
  3. Ask your friends and family to support your participation. This is a fundraising event, so we suggest you raise a minimum of $200.

Why participate in the CECI Charity and Sport Challenge?

"Today, young girls are managing to become entrepreneurs, especially in a sector dominated by men. Women have played a big role in this transformation. We can do what men can. This project has enabled me to be independent, to be a role model for young girls."
 Aïcha Bérété, Director of Batouly Prestations – Guinea

"The project brought us together! It increased the cooperative's agricultural capacity, which enabled us to offer more services to the community. It also enabled women to be more valued within their community, their cooperative and in the eyes of their husbands. CECI's strength lies in its involvement in the community and in respecting its commitments."
Oscar Marie Anglesanne, AVETI project participant – Haiti

Aïcha and Oscar Marie are two of our many project participants. Over the past 65 years, CECI has helped improve the living conditions of over 30 million people, more than half of whom are women.
