Vancouver is out and running for Christchurch with funds to benefit the Wilding Foundation.
Award-winning director, producer, writer and actress Anna Wilding has announced that The Education Abroad Network (TEAN) will hold a special walk/run in Canada to raise funds for the thousands of people left homeless and without jobs following the devastating earthquake that hit New Zealand in February.
Wilding, who currently resides in the US but was born and raised in Christchurch, recently visited her home city to witness the destruction caused by the earthquake, which killed over 160 people. She is currently working on a major documentary about the disaster.
Wilding states the Wilding Foundation welcomes greatly TEAN’s efforts and their contributions to the Christchurch earthquake: “Vancouver is a beautiful city, and the icing on the cake is the Education Abroad Network has committed to still send foreign students to Canterbury University as the city recovers.”
The event takes place at Habour Green Park in Vancouver on May 31. For information and directions, click here.
