ESBGC Fundraiser: Soles and Steps Walkathon

The Boys and Girls Club of East Scarborough provides service to over 5,000 children in the East Scarborough community, where 30% of the population lives below the poverty line, less than half completed post-secondary education, where 70% are visible minorities and a quarter of the population identifies as Black.

The Club is dedicated to vital front line work that addresses systematic issues together with children, youth and families in a marginalized community where there is a real danger of being disconnected and disenfranchised from each other and the systems designed to support them.

Amidst the ongoing conversations surrounding systematic racial barriers, donations are being collected to help the organization continue their work surrounding diversity and equity. 

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of East Scarborough, and any donation will help make an impact. My employer will be matching all donations up to $10,000 total. See below for FAQ.

Thank you in advance for your contribution. I greatly appreciate your help!

Deadline to fundraise: July 18th, 2020
