Help Scott raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

Thank you for helping the children of Dekpor!

Food insecurity is an issue facing children worldwide. How can children focus on learning with an empty stomach?

150 students in rural Ghana are currently benefitting from the Food Program provided to them by the Dekpor School Development Organisation. For just $50, a child is provided breakfast and lunch for four months! For $165, a child is provided the food program (as well as malaria medication) for a year!

This October I'm running, along with my 4-year-old nephew James, to support the children of Dekpor, Ghana. Thank you in advance for your generosity and for sponsoring my 5k run!



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.
