As a runner or walker in Toronto's Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon, you can also choose to join Cuso International's Run for the World team, so not only are doing good for yourself, but also the greater good. Cuso International brings positive and sustainable change to the lives of the world's most vulnerable.
Cuso International believes that the way to build equality in our world is through a person to person approach, a transfer of skills that provides people living in poverty with the knowledge to become self-sustainable. Cuso International sends people, not money. They send skilled volunteers to create change.
We are continuously inspired by the individuals that our volunteers work with overseas who live on meagre resources but never continue to lose hope for a better future. We are looking for team members to run with us and raise funds to ensure Cuso International can continue to give people a hand up, not a hand out and allow others to realize their better futures.
We have a great event planned for 2014, not only will you achieve some personal goals, mentally and physically — you will also be a part of something much bigger — raising some funds to help Cuso International alleviate poverty by allowing us to send more volunteers (doesn't that make you feel awesome!?) Besides the fact that you will be feeling awesome for helping the greater good, we want to reward you with Cuso swag, fundraising prizes and a celebratory dinner! We want to start as a team, and finish as a team.
You can start by registering for your own personal fundraising page, customize it with your own photos, words and then use it to recruit and thank donors, monitor your donations and share on social media.
If you are interested in running or walking with us please contact Laura.firstname.lastname@example.org to get your charity pin code for registration, as well as an email with all the details on next steps.
