The Amazing Race – Lighthouse Edition


Amazing Race – Lighthouse Edition

The Lighthouse Supported Living is an emergency shelter, supported living, and affordable housing provider in downtown Saskatoon.

The goal is to have a fun adventure race on foot with teams of two competing to raise big funds, beat the competition, and have a unique team building event. Mini-challenges around downtown Saskatoon will test your problem-solving skills with an after-party to celebrate!

We hope to raise $25,000 through sponsorship and team fundraising, with a goal of $500 raised per team.

Money raised will go towards renovations of the supported living suites, providing homes for those who have experienced or are at-risk of homelessness in Saskatoon.

Fundraiser Ends: September 23, 2016
Event Date: September 23, 2016
Time: 1:00pm
Start at the Lighthouse, Rain or Shine


Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Month

March is Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Month!

In 1966, The United Nations declared March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in commemoration of the 1960 Sharpeville massacre in South Africa when peaceful demonstrators against apartheid were wounded and killed. In 1990, City Council proclaimed March as Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Month in the City of Saskatoon.

Join us! The Cultural Diversity & Race Relations Committee presents “Living in Harmony” awards to recognize local organizations or individuals for their efforts in promoting intercultural harmony. The winners will be announced at a public “Living in Harmony” Awards Ceremony at 10 a.m. Monday, March 21, 2016, Tommy Douglas Collegiate (130 Bowlt Crescent). More information can be found here.
