WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING OTHER THAN JUST WALKING?

  • At 10:00 am on May 31st there will be an online group warmup to get everyone limbered up and excited to walk!
  • At 11:15am join us online again for a virtual concert with The Kwerks! The Kwerks are a married duo who appeal to young and old with their fun, rhythmic, folksy style. Whether performing for folk festival goers or writing songs with school kids in a classroom, The Kwerks bring warmth and a sense of fun every time. Easy to love, easy to dance to, easy to laugh with!
  • ASL interpreters will be provided for both online events.
  • We will also be sharing some other fun ways to make our walk more interactive.

DO I NEED TO DOWNLOAD ANY SPECIAL PROGRAM TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ONLINE EVENTS?  No! You can join on any device with any browser.  We will email all the registrants with links for the online events closer to the Walkathon date.

WE COLLECTED CASH DONATIONS. HOW DO WE GET THOSE TO YOU? We will have a staff member available at our Surrey Centre on Monday, June 1st to collect cash donations. If you are not able to drop them off to that location or on that date, please contact us to make alternate arrangements.

WE CAN’T WALK ON MAY 31ST – CAN WE STILL PARTICIPATE? Absolutely, the beauty of a virtual walk is that you can walk anytime that works for you. Or you can simply make a donation if you are not interested in doing the walk.
