7th Annual Walk-A-Thon - September 16, 2016

Our 7th Annual Walk-A-Thon fundraiser was our most successful ever!  The weather cooperated this year and it was a perfect September day to enjoy walking, dancing to the tunes of DJ Ace and barbecuing hot dogs.  We were joined by five wonderful volunteers from Scotiabank who barbecued hundreds of hot dogs, ran the water station and managed traffic.  Thank you to everyone for your generous pledges and donations and for helping us celebrate the day!
