Romero House is an organization that assists in resettling refugees in Canada. It consists of 4 houses and a neighbourhood centre in the west end of Toronto. Since Romero House was founded in 1992 it has provided housing, settlement and advocacy services to more than 6,000 individuals and families. Romero House is named after the Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador who was martyred for his outspoken defence of human rights. You can learn more about Romero House at www.romerohouse.org.
We warmly invite you to join our team, either by donating, fundraising, volunteering at our waterstation or running! You can also 'adopt' one of our refugee runners and help them fundraise. Runners and race day volunteers will receive a Romero House t-shirt and an invitation to our celebration after the race. To find out more about joining the team, please contact Matt Roorda at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-532-6960.
