It’s coming up soon! Equitas is running for human rights in the Montreal Charity Challenge on April 22nd! Published in 2023 Equitas is participating in the Montreal Charity Challenge for our fourth year on April 22, 2023, at Parc Jean Drapeau! Each year, the Charity Challenge brings together charities who form teams to raise funds for important causes and cover distances of either 5k, 10k, or 21k to demonstrate their commitment to the cause of their choice. This year, Equitas is thrilled to once again be participating to raise funds for human rights education to advance equality, social justice, and respect for human dignity! Participants will be running, walking, or rolling on April 22 at Parc Jean Drapeau in Montreal or virtually from anywhere in the world. April 22 also happens to be Earth Day! What better way to show your belief in the right to a healthy environment than participating in the Charity Challenge and soaking up the beautiful outdoors? Why go the distance for Equitas and human rights education? At Equitas, we believe that sharing knowledge, tools, and resources about human rights is a step forward to create deep-rooted change, empower people and communities, and develop more inclusive and compassionate societies. In a time where deepened inequalities and polarization poses threats to gains in human rights, this work is more crucial than ever. Participating in the Charity Challenge helps us to not only raise funds to continue our mission, but also to make the work of Equitas and our partners more visible and increase the number of supporters and allies of the human rights movement. In addition to this, it has the possibility of being either a fun activity or a motivating challenge depending on what you wish. Options you have: 1- Run, walk or roll with us!
