Help Valerie raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

Thank you for helping the children of Dekpor!

I'm happily participating in this event to raise funds for Dekpor School Development Organisation. Why do I like this charity? It is run by volunteers, their admin fees are minimal (0.75%), and they show me HOW the funds are used in rural Ghana. The money raised at this virtual STWM will go toward the food programme at Dekpor Basic School, the emergency medical fund, and to pay the wages of the librarians, tutors, and classroom assistant. Give generously and be amazed at the incredible IMPACT you can make!



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.
