The GMS Queen City Marathon is proud to partner with the following charities.
The Saskatchewan Literacy Network is a not-for-profit provincial organization that promotes and supports literacy throughout the province. We see a Saskatchewan where lifelong literacy is integrated into our lives—at home, at work and in the community—and where individuals can access the learning opportunities they want when and where they need them.
The YWCA Regina exists to support and empower women, children and youth in addressing their diverse needs in the realization of their full potential, which benefits all.
The Regina Food Bank is a charitable community based organization working to eliminate hunger and food insecurity through nutritious food distribution, education and support programs in partnership and cooperation with the community.
Special Olympics is dedicated to enriching the lives of individuals with an intellectual disability through active participation in sport.
In collaboration with our partners, the Hospitals of Regina Foundation raises funds to improve health care for the residents of southern Saskatchewan.
KidSport is a children’s charity which assists children of families facing financial obstacles to participate in community sport programs so that all kids can play.
Founded in 2002, the North Central Family Centre delivers a wide range of proven, successful structured programs and activities. NCFC offers children, youth and adults a place to participate in educational, sports, recreational, social, cultural, skill development and employment readiness and community outreach. NCFC believes strongly in our community, delivering programs designed to improve the quality of life for all residents and is committed to the revitalization of Regina’s North Central community.
For over four decades the Regina Humane Society has made a difference, one-by-one, for animals in our community. Hungry animals rescued from the cold have full tummies and a warm place to sleep. Others who have been neglected or abused have found a place to be safe, to trust and to be loved. The Society has, throughout the years, worked to improve the welfare of animals through programs and services in sheltering, education, protection and advocacy. Without those who support our mission to improve the well-being of animals in our community, we could not continue the valuable services we provide.
Since 1971, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Regina & Area has been making a positive difference in the lives of Regina’s youth by developing and implementing a broad range of mentoring programs for both in-school and outside of school. Serving as role models, our mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school and of having respect for family, peers, and community. Each time we pair a child with a mentor, we start something incredible. A life changing relationship built on friendship, trust, and empowerment.
Hope’s Home provides necessary care for children with complex medical needs, their siblings as well as typically developing children from the community. They provide daycare services, early learning and development programming, respite services, supportive living as well as transition care when moving children from the hospital into their community home
Most childcare centres are not equipped to care for children with these specialized medical needs, and families or caregivers of these children do not have the support they require. Hope’s Home provides these families with a safe and inclusive environment for their children to play and be kids regardless of any medical needs they may have.
The staff at Hope’s Home consists of administrative staff, nurses, early childhood educators and developmental workers.
