BMO VANCOUVER MARATHON
The Walking School Bus is excited to introduce our partnership with the BMO Vancouver Marathon 2019!
On May 5, 2019, our committed runners and fundraisers will be running through beautiful,
scenic Vancouver, participating in one of the top destination marathons in the world.
The Walking School Bus goal of a 100-runner team will go towards raising funds for our collaboration with the UNHCR to put down a Solar Power Classroom and engage our curriculum program at Twajiji Primary School in the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement.
Through our campaign, we aim to raise awareness of our proven research-driven approach and to provide
refugee children with the necessary tools to meet their full potential.
With increased awareness and support, we will be able to implement our research abroad,
and continue holistically providing access to education.
