Alex has teamed up with the Coquitlam Foundation to create a Diversity Initiative Fund for Coquitlam. Bell’s goal is to raise $10,000 over five years so that the fund will begin to generate enough interest to start distributing annual grants within the Tri-Cities.This is the 5th year for the Coquitlam Crunch Diversity Challenge and so far $9,697.14 has been raised. Please join in this year and make 2014 the best year ever by surpassing the $10,000 goal. The more money that is raised, the larger the yearly grant that can help support diversity initiatives in the community.
On September 6th, 2014 starting at 6:30am for the 'Make It or Break It' category or 10:00am for the 'Recreational' category Coquitlam resident and Safe Harbour Co-ordinator, Alexander Bell, is inviting the community to join him to walk the Coquitlam Crunch to raise money for a Community Diversity fund with the Coquitlam Foundation.
Last year a third category was added called the "Anything's Possible Trail" for people with mobility challenges. This category starts at 10:30am from the Church parking lot on David Avenue and follows a paved portion of the Crunch trail up past the dog park.
This event will be happening rain or shine. If you are going more than once you may want to bring a change of dry clothes.
A unique local charity, the Coquitlam Foundation, will host the Diversity fund in perpetuity. Established by an Act of the B.C. Legislature, the Coquitlam Foundation was created in 1992 to help generous and compassionate citizens create enduring legacies in their community.
Safe Harbour: Respect for All is about a vision in action: creating opportunities for storefront businesses, institutions, agencies, and entire municipalities to celebrate our differences, helping to create safer, more welcoming communities that support diversity and reject discrimination.
