Walk, Run, or Bike in Support of Richmond Charities

About Community In Motion

Community In Motion is both an event and a fundraising campaign, which we hope will become an annual summer tradition.

The event will take place on Saturday, July 8, at Garry Point Park, from 9:00am to 12:00pm, and is about two things: getting active and getting involved in your community.

To get you active, we’ve created three different routes – 1 km, 5 km, and 10 km – around Garry Point and along the West Dyke Trail. You can walk, run, or bike any of the routes, and do so at your own pace. Once you’re finished, we’ll provide you with a healthy snack!

But we also want to grow your appetite for community involvement. As such, a number of Richmond non-profit organizations will be in attendance, providing information on their services, as well as their volunteer opportunities and other ways you can lend your support. We have no doubt you’ll find an organization – and a cause – that resonates with you!

Plus, there will be fun activities like face painting and a community treasure hunt!

There’s no fee to take part in Community In Motion, though we are encouraging attendees to each make a $1 donation, on the day of the event. This money will be divided among the participating organizations.

Fundraising Campaign

To coincide with the event, we’re running an online fundraising campaign, in case you’d like to make a larger contribution to one of the organizations. You don’t have to attend the event to donate, though of course, we’d love to see you there!

To give online, find the organization you want to support from the list below, then click Donate. You’ll be taken to that organization’s campaign page, where you can make a contribution. After doing so, you’ll be sent an electronic tax receipt, from Chimp. Plus, your donation will be added to the overall total at the top of the page.

If you want to give as part of a group, or compete with other teams to see who can raise the most money, you can do that by creating a Giving Group.

However you choose to give, the main thing is this: your donation will make a difference, right here in your own community. For that, we thank you.
