I Run With Refugees

Hi, beloved friends! 

After receiving the wonderful support from friends, I decided to raise my goal to $1,500 (from the previous $1,000) to help Adam House reach the overall fundraising goal of $40,000! 

This year, I would like to team up with you to raise $1,500 CAD for Adam House, a wonderful, Toronto-based organization that helps welcome and care for refugees in our city. 

To make it more fun and challenging, instead of a single 5k run, I will be aiming to run or walk twenty-one 5k races during the month of October! You are welcome to sponsor a run for $47.00 CAD or however much you are able to contribute.  I will be posting updates and stories on my social media accounts (insta: guided_drifter).

Thank you so much for your support! 


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.
