Join us at the Run for Mercy 5K & Family Walk!

"There's no way I can possibly tell you all of the ways Mercy Canada changed my life; but I can tell you that Mercy Canada literally saved my life." —Rebecca, 2011 Graduate

Event Details 

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! Every participant runs or walks for different reasons, but our goal is the same: to see young women experience hope and freedom. Will you join us?
