Walkathon for Centretown Emergency Food Centre

This year, the Walkathon in support of the Centretown Emergency Food Centre is going virtual. Together in spirit, walking solo — but still walking. The walk will take place on Sunday, October 4 between 1 and 4 p.m. Instead of a set course, please walk between 2 and 4 kilometers on your favourite trail or around your neighbourhood. Jean and Stan have participated in all the previous walkathons and would be grateful for your support. The economic consequences of the pandemic have been hard for many of our neighbours in Centretown.

You can also donate directly to the CEFC at CEFC Walkathon
