On Sunday August 23rd, kids aged 6-13 will venture through 3km of obstacles and challenges through Coquitlam's Town Centre Park while their family and friends cheer them on from the sidelines!
This is an event you do not want to miss!
Ruben's Ruckus is our flagship fundraiser. The local kids in our community are some of our biggest supporters so we wanted to create an event that would not only raise money for our mission to deliver education, but would also give fun and excitement to the kids who have been such a big part in helping us raise shoes and donations.
Get ready for the most anticipated family event in the Tri-Cities!
Join us on Sunday, August 23rd 2020 for an event specifically dedicated to the fun and excitement of our local youth.
Participants will be running, balancing, climbing and crawling their way through 3km of obstacle challenges, but don't worry if you can't complete an obstacle, you're allowed to bi-pass as many challenges as you like.
Did you know that by participating in Ruben's Ruckus you are helping give education to children in an underdeveloped country? Ruben's Shoes Society has an elementary school in the Dominican Republic with over 240 students and we are now raising money to complete the build of our secondary school!
You can set up your very own online pledge website and start giving education to students in the Dominican Republic while collecting these cool badges along the way! Here are some of the things the money you raise will go towards:
When you raise $50 we can buy one desk for our students!
By raising $65 we can install one window in our new Secondary School!
It's hot in the Dominican Republic! $100 in pledges lets us install one classroom fan!
When you raise $200 we can install one classroom door!
