“The World Partnership Walk” is our Official Corporate Fundraising Event. It is part of our corporate culture to assist those that are less fortunate, locally and around the world.
The World Partnership Walk is Canada’s largest annual event dedicated to raising funds and increasing awareness to fight global poverty.
Now in its 27th year, the Walk is organized by volunteers in ten cities across Canada, and attracts tens of thousands of Canadians united in a common effort to bring hope and renewal to some of the poorest communities in the world.
Since the Walk’s inception, its corporate, individual and team supporters and volunteers have together raised more than $60 million in support of international development initiatives supported by Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC), making it the largest and most successful event of its kind in Canada. In 2010 nearly 40,000 Canadians came together to raise close to $6 million.
illustrate inc is pleased to have raised $1,700 from employee and company donations to the World Partnership Walk.
