Here is a little info on Kid Safe's goals...

The programming offered at KidSafe is rooted in social and emotional learning and development theory. Children’s overall health and well-being is related to the presence of key assets in their lives:

• Supportive relationships with adults at home, at school, and in the neighborhood

• A sense of belonging and friendship with peers • Good health habits (for example, regular breakfast, meals with family members, good sleeping habits)

• Participation in meaningful activities (for example, music, arts, sports, youth groups)

• Positive experiences at home, in school, and in the community (for example, a positive, supportive school climate)

On Sunday, May 3rd, 2015, runners from all over the world will take part in Vancouver's most historic run, the BMO Vancouver Marathon.

As one of this year’s official RUN4HOPE charities, KidSafe invites participants to run on behalf of the 450 vulnerable inner-city children KidSafe will serve this year.

Since we work with inspirational children every day, we took a play from their book and decided to DREAM BIG. Our dream is that our team runs in support of our kids and raises $40,000 to provide them with supportive safe havens over the school breaks.

KidSafe operates free of charge to vulnerable children and their families. Be part of a team that provides:
