Help Carol raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

Thank you for helping the children of Dekpor!

By golly, this is year #9 for me and I'm determined to help the kids in Dekpor.

Will I walk the streets of Aurora this year? Yep! 

Will I wear a goofy costume? Yep!

Did you know that we are unpaid volunteers? It's true!

Did you know that our admin fees (website url and year end financials) are LESS than 1%? They were 0.75% last year. (Not bragging, or anything, but that's kinda unheard of!)

Do the kids getting a nutritious meal due to your generous donation thank YOU? Yep!

Should you feel great about making an impact? Yep!

Do I appreciate you?  Darn tootin'!  Look, I am fully aware that my asks have been happening for a lot of years and that I am one lucky gal to have so many generous people surrounding me.

Please know that you are making a difference and that my gratitude is genuine! We simply could not accomplish all the great things we do without your support!

We ARE grateful for your support! The kids thank you! And I thank you,


Note that donations of $25+ will be issued a tax receipt immediately after you make a donation.



Dekpor School Development Organisation = hard-working volunteers improving: education, sanitation, clean water, nutrition, health, sponsorships, business start-ups, and crop diversity in rural Ghana.

Funds raised at this event are what allow us to run our food programme.  Breakfast and lunch are served to 150 students at school, but, gee, we'd love to add even more of the 1000 students to the list of recipients! 

You, too, can be part of something wonderful and SEE your fundraising efforts actually MAKE a DIFFERENCE! Give generously.  Every single dollar truly helps!

                  Just to give you an idea of your impact: 

                   $50 feeds a child for 4 months

                   $165 gives breakfast and lunch every school day + health care + summer school fees paid for 1 child for a year!

                    Please know that we are grateful for ANY amount given!


*Note: Donations of $25+ will receive a tax receipt automatically generated by this Race Roster platform.
