I Run With Refugees

My family and I have been running and raising funds for Adam House through the Scotia Charity Challenge since 2016! It is an event we all look forward to! We love Adam House and are grateful for the opportunity to help refugees when they first arrive in Canada. 

For every $161.50* raised, I will walk 5k a day from Sep 25 through Oct 31! Plus, our whole family will walk 8.5k from Adam House to our new Booth House with the Adam House Charity Challenge team on Sat, Oct 16! 

Please give generously and help provide a warm welcome to refugees!

Description

Where would you go if you had nothing and you knew no one?

Having nothing and knowing no one is often just the beginning of the barriers new refugees face. Often times there is a language barrier. Refugee claimants are dealing with numerous issues-trauma that was experienced in their home country and on their journey to Canada, and often living with the anguish of leaving family behind.

Adam House provides refugee claimants with clean and safe living accommodations. The staff at Adam House provide assistance and advice with immigration procedures, primarily to residents and former residents. They provide referrals to legal services, medical assistance, and community resources. However, Adam House is much more than shelter or the services they provide. Adam House is home. A place where residents find friendship and support-from staff and each other.

Every dollar raised enables Adam House to continue welcoming refugees.
