Founded by our friend and inspiring community leader, the late Olympian Silvia Ruegger, Hopes Rise provides a Physical Fitness, Literacy and Leadership after-school program called Champions Club, for children in grades 1 - 6 in Toronto’s under-served communities.
The Runners Shop is proudly committed to helping Hopes Rise carry on Silvia’s “audacious hope” of a bright future for all Canadian children. Students will train for and participate in a 5K run, and it is our goal to outfit each child in Champions Club with a pair of shoes.
Please help us make their race day and participation in the program memorable. Together we can build tomorrow's leaders and our community!
Every donation of $40 = 1 pair of shoes.
