Absolutely! On Event Day, there will be many exciting activities to enjoy including a charity bazaar, workshops, games, performances, nutritional cooking demonstrations, health screening and information booths, and much more! Cheer on friends at the finish line!
My elderly parents are not able to walk, but they would still like to participate in some way. How can they be involved?
That’s great! We encourage them to make a general donation to support Carefirst’s social, health care and supportive services. Alternatively, they can donate by supporting friends doing the walk. Most importantly, SPREAD THE WORD. Share our dream with family and friends, and invite them to join our journey to raise $6 million towards the One-Stop Access Multi-Services Centre. They can also enjoy the many activities on Event Day.
Are donations refundable?
Sorry, all donations are non-refundable.
