Here's how many Goats the runners at The 2nd Annual Great Canadian Goat Run
purchased today to help people living in poverty gain greater levels of self-sufficiency and control over their lives and the future of their communities.

“Your gift also includes animal vaccinations, animal health training and instruction on marketing, meaning a single goat can create greater self- sufficiency, self-esteem and educational opportunities for recipients and their families. Each goat is purchased in the region where it is needed. Oxfam’s program officers ensure that communities have the resources and training to take on the responsibility of animal rearing.”

“Oxfam Canada stands in solidarity with women and men around the world, helping them with the tools and intangibles that empower them to become leaders in their communities. Our programs are designed to strengthen skills so that women and men are able to enjoy their rights, live lives of dignity and pursue dreams and goals.”


Our sincere thanks to everyone involved in today's
Great Canadian Goat Run!
