Run to End Poverty coming up fast

September 11, 2013 | By |

This could be the most exciting event of the year! On October 20, at the Octoberfest run, our chapter, plus the UW and Guelph chapters, are running to end poverty.

Since 2009, EWB’s Run to End Poverty (R2EP) has taken place in 14 cities, raising a total of $405,000. These events are organized entirely by our volunteer base, engaging close to a thousand runners each year from coast-to-coast. People from all walks of life join R2EP with one common goal: to eliminate extreme poverty in rural Africa.

Want to participate? It’s easy, there are both 5k and 10k runs and you can sign up on our website. How about forming at team among your friends or at work?

If you can’t make it to the run, support one of our runners. Your entire chapter exec are running: Simon, Naomi, Neal … and I can’t end this post without mentioning that our part of the Run is being organized by Kathryn Sutter, who is of course also running.

Keep an eye on our twitter and facebook pages for info about practice runs. See you out there!
