Run for the World

Share this:

Today, do something good for yourself – register to run with us by choosing to join one of our Run for the World teams across Canada and around the world.

Today, do something good for others – get people to sponsor you as part of a charity challenge, fundraising to help Cuso International bring positive and sustainable change to the lives of the world’s most vulnerable.

We are going to change the world. Won’t you join us?

We are continuously inspired by the individuals that our volunteers work with overseas who live on meagre resources but never continue to lose hope for a better future. We Run for the World so that we continue to give people a hand up, not a hand out and allow others to realize their better futures.

Returned volunteer Kim Byers wrote, "I would definitely recommend getting involved in Cuso's Running for the World. It is not only a great way to let people know about Cuso International, but it is a fun way to engage people in international development issues. I will definitely be running again!!"

Find a Run for the World event near you by checking the event listing below – OR, plan a run in your own community to support Cuso international! Whether in North America or overseas, you too can Run for the World.
