Lots of people want to get in better shape and do more to help people in need, but the issues can be overwhelming. Team World Vision empowers its team members to make a physical challenge – like running a marathon – even more meaningful by dedicating it to children in need.
In just a few years, we’ve become the largest charity running team at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, one of the largest marathons in North America. Since Team World Vision’s launch in 2006, over 20,000 team members have participated in events in dozens of countries.
At the Ottawa Marathon, funds raised will go toward protecting vulnerable children. $50 will protect a child labourer by providing an education scholarship. $75 will help a sexually exploited child with shelter and counseling. $75 will also protect a child soldier and reunite him with his family.
We provide all the training and resources you need to finish your race and reach your fundraising objective. Then on race weekend we can celebrate changed lives, both here and around the world.
