Run for a CAUSE!
In partnership with athletes like you, the 2017 Canmore Rocky Mountain Half Marathon will raise valuable funds for CAUSE Canada's vital international development programs. This year, our goal is to raise $30,000 through pledges to support mothers and their children in hard-to-reach villages in Guatemala and Honduras. CAUSE Canada’s Maternal and Child Health Program educates rural communities about risks during pregnancy and delivery, promotes breastfeeding and improved nutrition through counseling, malnutrition screening, and prenatal care.
