Run for Mercy 5K & Family Walk
MAY 11, 2019 | ALDERGROVE REGIONAL PARK | LANGLEY, BC
Check-In/Registration: 9 AM
Program Start Time: 10 AM
When you Run for Mercy, you support Mercy Canada’s residential program for young women who struggle with life-controlling issues, such as eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, physical and sexual abuse, depression, unplanned pregnancies, and sex trafficking. Our residential program is voluntary, Christ centred, and completely free of charge to young women ages 19-28 across Canada. It lasts approximately 6-9 months and is designed to address the whole person – spirit, soul, and body.
Register as an individual or with a team! Everyone runs or walks for different reasons, but our goal is the same: to see young women experience hope and freedom. Will you join us?
We encourage a personal fundraising goal of $500. While our program is free of charge to the young women we serve, our financial resources depend on the support of friends of Mercy.
The Run for Mercy 5K & Family Walk raises necessary awareness and funds to provide a safe place for young women to heal. All funds raised will benefit the young women in our program, which includes 24/7 residential care, individual and group counselling, nutritional education, biblical teaching, fitness training, educational preparation, transitional planning, and aftercare.
For more information and available sponsorships, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-535-1983.
Mercy Canada is a registered Christian charity that operates under the highest standards of financial accountability. We are a certified member of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities (CCCC), and our residential program is licensed by Fraser Health under the Community Care & Assisted Living Act.
Business and community sponsors are an important way that we will meet our goals for this event. Interested in joining our sponsor team? Please download our 2019 Sponsorship Commitment Form for more details.
