MAKE A DIFFERENCE AT RUN 14

Run to help keep Streetfront running!

Since 2007, we have loved every edition of this wonderful annual community event. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to offer a safe in-person run that meets government COVID-19 restrictions. 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 ever. 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.

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.

Your 2020 contributions support these Streetfront initiatives

Outdoor Ed

OUTDOOR ED

Provide 35 days of outdoor education in 2020/2021. Hiking, skiing, climbing, canoeing, camping all provide necessary life skills, mental health and resilience. Funds will support transport, equipment and associated costs.

Run Program

RUN PROGRAM

Sustain the keystone running program. The marathon motto is more relevant than ever: one step at a time. Funds will support shoes and gear where needed, entries and travel funds where applicable.

Technology

TECHNOLOGY

Bridge the technology gap. It can mean the difference between attending school or not during the pandemic. Funds will help support kids with technology needs that are diminishing access to education.

An Epic Journey

AN EPIC JPOURNEY

Street2Peak Project 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). Plans for Nepal in 2021 have been redirected to paddling the Yukon River and backpacking through Tombstone Territorial Park in July 2021.
