YES! GREENRACE IS COMMUNITY!
As of 1 Nov 2016, our GreenRace and it’s participants have made small (but growing!) contributions to a Greener Canada!
RUN WITH GREENRACE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
We want ensure maximum funds we raise and hours we volunteer reach the source of the issue. For this, we have carefully chosen our community and fundraising partners.
HELPUSHELP CASTLEGAR (HUHCA)
COMMUNITY PROJECTS & GREEN CAUSES!
GreenRace HelpUsHelpCA fundraising is always searching for unique ways to raise funds for green, community and humanitarian causes. Our focus for 2017 is student ‘green projects’ where we are looking to raise funds for students developing ways to help CA stay Green.
We’re running to be part of real change for the better in Canada and make a difference where it’s needed most.
OUR HUHCA PLAN
By allowing runners to opt out of racepack items at our GreenRace Events, this allows us to:
- Better ensure more runners gets what they are looking for in a racepack.
- Divert the costs of producing unwanted racepack items to HUHCA Community Projects.
- Reduce the amount product transported to & from our events.
- Provide event capacity to collect unwanted racepack items from other events and get them to communities grateful to utilise these items!
- Help promote Zero Waste & RRR Reduce Reuse Recycle change in Canada.
- We are leading by example! Visit: thegreenrace.ca/rrr to support and Go Green in 2017!
The following GreenRace projects are in the works with HelpUsHelpCA:
1. Help fund a CA Student GreenCommunity project that helps make SG an even greener place to live! We are accepting student applications here: thegreenrace.ca/projectgreen
2. Sponsor disadvantaged children’s education in Nepal & Vietnam in collaboration with Not Just a Bottle (www.notjustabottle.com).
3. Adopt an eroded / damaged section of CA Country Park Trail and support in the restoration.
*WE WILL UPDATE ON OUR PROGRESS MADE REGULARLY!
