CROSS THE LINE 2019 STARTS IN
Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 9:00 am
Cross the line is a family friendly and well supported 5k charity walk/run based in the L'Amoreaux community in North-East Toronto. Every year we run as a local community to raise funds for the best humanitarian causes we can find.
The Cause (2019)
Through what has been called a “planned, deliberate and widespread campaign of ethnic cleansing,” over half a million Rohingya refugees have fled for their lives into Bangladesh. To meet the humanitarian crises, enormous emergency refugee camps are being set up, including a 3000 acre camp at Kutupalong.
Basic human necessities are urgently needed inside the camps. We have partnered with ERDO to drill wells inside the refugee camp. Each well provides clean drinking water for roughly 100 people at a cost of $1,169.00. This cost includes program oversight, monitoring, evaluations, reporting and GPS geolocating. Every well meets UN standards - including a minimum of well depth of 1,000 feet deep to ensure water quality is high.
The need is pressing, the timing is critical, the opportunity to make a great impact is urgent.
Planning ahead, are ya? We are too!
Believe it or not, you can already sign up to be a part of this event as a volunteer. Initial positions include being a part of our street team to help get the word out. Race-day positions will open up later this year.
As with our 2018 event, every volunteer will receive a special edition t-shirt (while quantities last).
