Thousands of people will walk together through Stanley Park on Sunday to raise money for the fight against global poverty.
The 32nd annual World Partnership Walk is an initiative of the Aga Khan Foundation Canada and is the country’s biggest event to raise funds for global development. The walk takes place in 10 cities across Canada, including Vancouver and Victoria.
Since the walk began, it has raised more than $95 million — including $7 million last year — and 100 per cent of the donations go to support programs that help transform the lives of more than seven million people in 14 countries in Africa and Asia.
