ON Sunday, September 21, the 23rd annual Ismaili Walk took place at Lumberman’s Arch in Stanley Park. Celebrating in some great late summer weather, the spirit of service and caring for the community was alive.
British Columbians from all across Vancouver attended the walk and together raised over $200,000 for this year’s annual walk. The Ismaili Muslim Community of BC partnered with the YWCA Metro Vancouver to help raise awareness and funds in support of YWCA Cause We Care House. Over the past 23 years, the Ismaili Walk has become one of the cities favourite family events.
YWCA Cause We Care House is an integrated housing community being built to support some of Vancouver’s most vulnerable families: single mothers bravely raising children in challenging economic situations.
Since its’ inception, the Ismaili Walk has raised over $4.3 million.
