From September 15 to October 15, we're asking Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) supporters across Canada to raise money and help deliver healthcare to people in need by participating in the Walk Without Borders Challenge.
Sign up for the Walk Without Borders Challenge and show your solidarity with MSF patients all over the world who walk long distances to access lifesaving medical treatment.
You can walk alone or as part of a team. You’ll choose the distance you want to walk, and you’ll collect pledges from family, friends and acquaintances. They’ll follow your progress on your personal campaign webpage.
Walk, run, or stroll. Spread your challenge out over seven weeks, or finish the whole thing in one day. Walk by yourself, with a friend, or organize a group walk. Come up with creative ways of completing your challenge and getting others to participate or donate. Anything goes, as long as it’s consistent with the spirit of MSF. What’s important is that you’re raising money to provide healthcare for people in need.
The Walk Without Borders Challenge is easy and fun – and it’s also directly connected to the lives of the people that MSF serves. You’ll read the stories of real MSF patients who have walked great distances to get treatment, and then choose one to walk in solidarity with on your personal campaign webpage.
Even if you’ve never raised money before – don’t worry. We’ll provide you with the tools you need to make your walk a success. The Walk Without Borders Challenge begins on September 15. Get ready!
