Climate change affects all of us and we all have to do something about it. That can be a daunting task and it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why we organized the Great Climate Race, a walking/ running event series that enables participants world wide to crowd fund for local renewable energy projects. Its a fun way to do something meaningful in your own community.
So far we have organized three 10k and 2.5k walk/ run in Vancouver + an annual international virtual race. After our third race in 2017 we have launched ongoing month to month fundraising challenges using our new fundraising tool.
If you would like more information about how to get involved as well as exciting news about the climate solutions we are helping to support put your name and email in this form.
These family-friendly events are for people of all ages and athletic abilities and from every walk of life. Look forward to a unique experience filled with costumes, theatrics, technology displays, fun and surprises!
It is very important to us that our events respect local indigenous communities. We see The Great Climate Race as an opportunity to share the history and context of event locations and for meaningful partnerships with First Nations governments and companies. We are currently raising funds to support a project for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation. If you would like to help raise money per km of running or walking click this link to learn more.
Our first three events happened at Stanley Park in Coast Salish Territory. Event participants will learn place names and stories from signs on the race route itself and local First Nations leaders will play key roles in opening ceremonies.
