MAKE A DIFFERENCE AT RUN 16

We’re extremely excited to bring back our favourite fall community event IN PERSON!

Thank you to everybody that participated in our virtual runs the last two years. Run 15 raised over $42,000 and allowed us to support Streetfront to keep up their amazing program. All kids deserve to reach their full potential and many are denied this opportunity due to a lack of resources. Streetfront is an East Vancouver alternative school program that fully invests in at-risk youth who have not succeeded in mainstream schools. The results are amazing, with 96% high school graduation rates and hundreds of marathon finishers.

SHLF SUPPORTS STREETFRONT

We need you to help keep Streetfront running. The pandemic has severely diminished charitable giving. It is down by over 30 percent and 70 percent of Canadian charities are reporting decreased revenues. Meanwhile social gaps are wider than pre-COVID. All kids deserve to reach their full potential and many are denied this opportunity due to lack of resources. Streetfront is an East Vancouver alternative school program that fully invests in at-risk youth who have not succeeded in mainstream schools. The results are amazing, with 96% high school graduation rates and hundreds of marathon finishers. Streetfront is working harder than ever to deliver quality education and life-affirming support to at-risk youth. Their goals are high and their results are amazing, pandemic or not. Since 2009, SHLF has been able to provide Streetfront with an operating budget that has allowed them to spend 35 school days a year doing outdoor adventures and helping hundreds of at-risk youth finish marathons.

EPIC JOURNEYS

Street2Peak started in 2014 as a 10-year venture to take some of Streetfront’s youth to 5 continents. They’ve conquered Tanzania (2015), Chile (2017) and New Zealand (2019). 2021–22 plans were thwarted by the pandemic, but the kids will tackle another peak in 2023.

An Epic Journey
