Welcome to my Homeward Walk/Run Fundraising Page! I have signed up to complete the 5k Run on June 18th, 2017! Together we can reach the finish line: ending youth homelessness!
This run raises money for e4c, Edmonton John Howard Society, iHuman, and YESS. These amazing organizations work with youth who are street involved and/or experiencing homelessness. Homelessness does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender identity, race, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, or family background. Everyone who experiences homelessness has a story. Let's give a voice to those stories and help youth become their best selves. We know that this starts with meeting their basic needs – shelter, food, safety, love.
This event is very close to my heart. Working at e4c has given me the opportunity to meet so many amazing youth and adults who are affected by poverty and homelessness in Edmonton. I am inspired by the courage, resliency, and bravery they bring to their daily lives. As a member of the LGBTQ2S+ community, I would also like to highlight that even though only 10% of the general population identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, as many as 25-40% of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ2S+. I am incredibly proud to work for an organization that openly welcomes LGBTQ2S+ individuals into it's programming, and specifically, works to respect and validate transgender identities.
Will you support my Run? Your donation would help fund the valuable programming that e4c, Edmonton John Howard Society, iHuman, and YESS provides for youth in Edmonton.
P.S. Yes, you read that correctly... I am Running a 5k!!! This is the first official run that I have signed up for! Wish Me Luck!
