Walk for Wellspring 2019Published: September 23, 2019
Wellspring London celebrated a milestone this year by holding its 15th Walk for Wellspring fundraiser on September 7, 2019.
The yearly walk-a-thon is intended to both raise awareness and funds to support Wellspring London’s ongoing supportive care programs for individuals and families affected by cancer. In just 14 years, the fundraiser has raised an impressive $906K.
This year, Wellspring London wanted to give its participants a special thank you for their continued support. Each participant who raised $50 and over, received a free Wellspring Walk Baseball Cap which fit this year’s “Hats on to You” theme. Boardwalk had a team of close to 40 walkers and volunteers consisting of Associates, Residents and their families.
Some other teams that registered for the five-kilometre walk included:
Bunty’s Bunch, Tumornators, Kim’s Krafters, Steppers 4 WS, Marija’s Marvels, Lotus Blossoms, Group Therapy Rocks, Ashley’s Perky Peeps, Team Streiss, Start With Today, Force of Pam, Jubilee Ramblers, AhmadOla, Leeanna Banan Tranner, ScotiaBank and Littlewood Ladies.
Following the walk, everyone was invited to participate in some fun activities, including face painting, giveaways and some delicious treats.
