6th Annual (Virtual) CARE Walk

WHO ARE YOU

WALKING FOR?

 

Register today for the Cancer Assistance Program's 6th Annual (Virtual) CARE Walk! Start or join a team, set a fundraising goal, and begin collecting pledges in support of individuals and families affected by cancer right here in our community.

 

This family friendly peer-to-peer fundraising event will take place on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event has moved to a *VIRTUAL FORMAT* where you can participate from anywhere at anytime - from your stairs or treadmill at home, to your local park or nearby trail.

 

Whether you choose to walk, hike, bike or roll 5km, we hope you will help us come together virtually in honour of a friend or loved one affected by cancer. Please consider registering yourself or a team and begin collecting pledges today. Who are you walking for?

 

Proceeds raised at this essential fundraising event ensure the Cancer Assistance Program is able to continue providing FREE practical support to cancer patients and their families in our community during an especially challenging time. Your support will provide help when it is needed most.

 

If you're unable to participate, you can make a general donation to the event or search for existing participants and donate toward their goals. CAP does not receive sustainable government funding and relies greatly on funds raised from signature events like this - every dollar helps!

 

DATE: Saturday, May 23, 2020

LOCATION: Anywhere (from home or within your local neighbourhood)

5KM WALK, HIKE, BIKE or ROLL: Anytime (all day long on Sat. May 23, 2020)

COST: $20 per adult (under 18 are free)

INCLUDES: Participant bib, social media graphics, raffle & contest prizes, and invitation to post-event celebration (more details to come)

 

PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING: If you registered online in 2018 or 2019, you can sign in with that account. Otherwise, you will be required to set up a new account. Email addresses are required upon registration - if you are participating with young children who will not be registering online, please indicate how many during registration so we can anticipate numbers.

 

We ask that all participants practice social distancing while taking part in this event and keep a safe distance from others at all times. While we encourage online teams, please ensure you are performing activities independently or with those in your household only.
