UVic had a high profile at this year’s event—Karima Ramji, Convenor of the 2011 World Partnership Walk, also serves as International Coordinator for the Co-operative Education Program and Career Services.
Five kilometres, positive team spirit and a shared goal of fighting global poverty—these were the key ingredients to UVic’s participation in the 2011 World Partnership Walk (WPW), held May 29 at Beacon Hill Park.
More than 25 UVic staff, students and their families took part in last month’s WPW event, which is Canada’s largest fundraiser aimed at fighting global poverty.The UVic team walked 5 km along Dallas Road and raised over $6,000 towards the total of $200,000. One hundred per cent of these funds will go directly to support community-led social development projects in the most impoverished regions of Asia and Africa.
