Run for Promise is your opportunity to take action and support UrbanPromise Toronto!
Children living in Toronto Community Housing neighbourhoods are especially vulnerable during the hours of 3-6pm, after school and before an adult is home from work. That's why After School Program is at the heart of what we do. Each day children aged 5-14 are provided with a safe place to go, staffed by adults and older teenagers who care about them. After School Program provides help with homework, healthy snacks, experiential learning, games, crafts and tons of of other 'kid stuff'.
Our model isn't fancy or complicated. It is a commitment to a 20 year journey with a child and their family, to help them overcome the obstacles of poverty, and grow into a generation of exceptional young leaders who love Jesus and serve their own communities.
Run for Promise is our biggest fundraising event of the year. It's an opportunity to include you in our mission, on the streets we're so passionate about.
Just $432 provides an entire year of After School Program for 1 child. Our goal is to raise $75,000 together- that's enough to cover 173 children for a whole year.
The Run for Promise team is made up of competitive marathoners, recreational 5k-ers and everything in between. Run, walk, cheer, donate - there's something for everyone.
It is worth every step.
