Rahab Ministry Don River Walk

Join us at 9:30am on Saturday, September 24 for Rahab Ministry’s Don River Walk! Starting at 95 Jonesville Crescent, we will walk 6K through the gorgeous East Don trail and its surrounding area. Take part in a silent auction, get exclusive merch, and support Rahab Ministry while having delicious food and drink. 

Help us reach our goal of raising $30,000 that will go toward funding our vital programs like the Rahab Residence, Massage Parlour Outreach, and Sex Trade Exit Assistance. Other services that you will help include aid with buying groceries, transportation funds, English classes, job search assistance, skills training, immigration support and more. 

Walk as an individual, participate in a team by inviting friends and family to join, or show your support by donating to a walker!

We need your help now more than ever. It is a difficult time, especially for many of the women we serve. Help us make even more of an impact. 

Register now to walk.
