About the Movement

Run4Change is a national initiative that addresses the two most critical issues facing Canadian children and youth today – obesity/physical inactivity and child poverty. Run4Change has been endorsed by running retailers and businesses across the country, as well as by a number of school boards such as the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board, the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board, the Edmonton Catholic School Board, the Calgary Board of Education, and the Halifax Regional School Board. Hundreds of elementary and secondary schools within these regions and across the nation participate..

R4C raises vital funds to support Start2Finish, a national children’s charity whose mission is to break the cycle of child poverty by providing ongoing educational support to Canada’s at risk children throughout their school years, nurturing mind, body and social health so they are empowered to succeed and become role models for change. The Start2Finish Fitness & Literacy Model helps kids with high adverse childhood experiences reach their maximum potential. Research conducted by the S2F Scientific Advisory Group has shown that physical activity, like running, develops non-cognitive skills including grit, commitment, perseverance, and optimism; all soft skills needed to maneuver life’s obstacles. Literacy, the second component of the S2F Model, is a highly predictive success indicator.

With the valuable partnership of socially conscious individuals, businesses, schools and community partners like you, Start2Finish is nurturing successful kids prepared to tackle any challenge and become all they can be!
