7th Annual (Virtual) CARE Walk

WHO ARE YOU

WALKING FOR?

 

Register today for the Cancer Assistance Program's 7th 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 29, 2021.Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we're going *VIRTUAL* once again where you can participate from anywhere at anytime - from your stairs or treadmill at home, to your local neighbourhood park or trail. New this year, we're introducing an online silent auction with some amazing items to bid on in the week leading up to event day - details and preview coming soon!

 

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 supports 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 29, 2021

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

5KM WALK, HIKE, BIKE or ROLL: Anytime (all day long on Sat. May 29, 2021)
