The Walk is an initiative of Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) – a national campaign that requires the talent and dedication of thousands of volunteers and sponsors. As they will tell you, the Walk provides not just an opportunity to give, but also to learn, to grow, and to engage as global citizens. Over 6,000 volunteers, 569 teams and our many corporate sponsors gave generously of their time, skills and knowledge to make this year’s Walk a success. We are pleased to feature some of their stories in this report.
Thanks to your commitment, the Walk raised over $7 million nationally in 2015. Your donations will go directly to support AKFC’s development programs in Africa and Asia – initiatives that enable women and men to lift themselves and their children out of poverty, creating strong, vibrant communities, hospitals, schools and businesses.
