"Walk 'n' Roll"
March of Dimes fundraiser helps people with disabilities, family and friends improve fitness, foster community participation and support people with disabilities.
From Friday, April 13 – Sunday, April 15th, March of Dimes Canada will be holding its fourth annual Walk' n' Roll fundraiser in communities throughout Ontario and Calgary, Alberta. The Walk 'n' Roll is the perfect opportunity for volunteers or fitness groups to get active, improve their fitness, foster a spirit of community involvement and support a great cause. The event is open to people of all ages and abilities.
Participants from stroke, polio, acquired brain injury support groups, as well as residents of March of Dimes supportive living homes raise pledges from friends, family, neighbours, coworkers, etc., in return for a commitment to walk, or roll a local mall. In addition, volunteers will be helping to raise awareness about the programs and services of March of Dimes Canada.
“We couldn’t be more excited about Walk ‘n’ Roll” says Donna Mackay, Associate Director of National Programs for March of Dimes Canada. “Walk ‘n’ Roll both recognizes the important contribution that March of Dimes and our consumers have already made in their communities and supports our vision of a society fully inclusive of people with disabilities.”
Walk’ ‘n’ Roll events will be held in York Region, London, Mississauga, Hamilton, Toronto, North Bay, Cambridge, Milton, Barrie, Niagara, Stoney Creek, Guelph, Kitchener and Waterloo in Ontario and Calgary, Alberta.
