We’re opening our doors to a good cause.
Terry SanCartier is bringing the art exhibition to Ottawa to support the “Run for Gambia” Fundraiser.
Artists have donated artwork for the exhibition to raise funds for the Love for Gambia charity. This is your chance to buy some artwork AND see your money support a good cause.
Terry SanCartier is also organizing a 424 km run in Gambia to raise awareness and funds.
What is RunForGambia?
A 424 kilometre running expedition across the West African nation of The Gambia in conditions of high heat & humidity. It will take place in June 2014.
The run starts in the rural community of Koina on The Gambia’s Eastern border with Senegal and ends in the capital city of Banjul by the Atlantic Ocean.
To raise funds to keep children alive through health education programs.
Your support helps the Nova Scotia Gambia Association (NSGA) deliver life-saving education and training programs that teach Gambian communities about HIV/AIDS, malaria, sexual health, maternal health, gender equity and human rights, youth leadership, water sanitation, and land mine safety and awareness.
Who is running?
Terry SanCartier of Ottawa-Gatineau. He will be accompanied by a team of three gambians.
“My reason for doing this run is to draw attention to the cause.” Says Terry. “during my run through the Gambia, I will meet people who will want to hear about why I am doing this. I will help the NSGA spread the word about health education to small communities across the country & to raise awareness for healthier habits.”
“Running is an activity that promotes good physical & mental health. It shows young people what one can accomplish with hard work & commitment. Anything is possible! Even something as crazy as running across a whole country in incredible heat & humidity!”
