Ismaili Walk 2015 for Mental Health: Benefiting VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation

Step up to Support Mental Health

The Ismaili Walk was founded in 1992 by the Ismaili Muslim Community of BC to raise awareness and funds that further the mandate of partner organizations. This year, the Walk has partnered with the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation and the Canadian Mental Health Association, BC, to raise awareness and funds to support their efforts in providing vital mental health resources in the community.

Since its inception, the event has raised over $4.25 million in support of local community organizations including hospitals, food banks, the Vancouver Public Library, Simon Fraser University, Habitat for Humanity, the Crisis Center of Greater Vancouver, United Way, the Women’s Health Research Institute (WHRI) at BC Women’s Hospital & Health Centre Foundation, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and the YWCA Metro Vancouver’s Cause We Care House.
