Run for Rights!

    Run for Rights!

    On October 16, Amnesty supporters will be running/walking in the Toronto Waterfront event to raise money for our essential human rights work. You can participate in three ways:

    1.  Support one or more of the runners with a donation. Watch this space in September for a list of runners and their fundraising pages.

    2.  Choose to run the marathon, or to run/walk the half marathon (21km) or the 5km yourself.

    3.  Recruit a runner to participate in your place and help them fundraise.

    Just so you know, the course is pretty flat, you can rest any time, medics are available to help you with blisters or cramps, and best of all, you will be jogging beside Lake Ontario with 22,000 people from all over the world! One more tip: Most runners find running on the day of the event easier than when they are training solo. To sign up with a “yes” or a “maybe”, contact Marilyn McKim at  for instructions on registering and fundraising.
