Help James raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

Thank you for helping the children of Dekpor!

Please support the inaugural 
"James David's Food Insecurity Awareness Fun Run for Dekpor!" 

James David (JD) is running in his first ever 1k for charity!!! He is supporting the food program for children in rural Ghana, as a part of the fundraising team for the Dekpor School Development Organisation (DSDO). 

JD knows that children like him need breakfast and lunch in order to learn well at school. For just $50, a child can have breakfast and lunch provided for FOUR months! He's hoping you will help sponsor his run and support the children of Dekpor, Ghana and their food program!

(Plus little brother Sammy will likely be tagging along on race day!)

Thank you for your support and encouragement as JD participates in his first big event!

(As a family we support this amazing charity as nearly every. single. cent. raised by fundraising goes directly to the people and their programs in Dekpor. 100% of your donation today for sponsoring JD in the Toronto Waterfront Marathon will go to DSDO, too. It is a small organisation run by THREE volunteers -- two of whom live in Dekpor and truly believe in following the lead of the local residents on what their needs are, and what can truly uplift their rural village in a meaningful way. In short, this charity is AMAZING, small, and makes a HUGE impact in a legitimate and culturally aware way for nearly 9000 people in Ghana. Thank you for choosing to make a charitable action today and putting it towards such a wonderful organisation.)



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.
