Grab your ugliest Christmas sweater and join us for a walk through Historic downtown Arnprior on December 1, 2018! This event is in memory of Penny Stashick, an important member of the Arnprior community who lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer last fall. She was someone who always put others first, loved the holiday season, and took every chance she had to dress up like a goofball. For those reasons, we are extremely proud to announce the 1st annual Penny Stashick Ugly Christmas Sweater Walk.The 2.5 km walk will start at Arnprior's Robert Simpson Park, continue to McGonigal Street before returning to the park for the post-walk festivities.

Following the event we invite all participants to stay for an after party hosted by Catherine Lathem of CTV News. Featured activities will include live holiday music, a Christmas market and family activities. There will be prizes for the top fundraisers and ugliest sweater.

You can register on this site to raise funds or print off a pledge form and raise money that way. Registration forms can also be picked up at the Nick Smith Centre and at Sports Zone in the Arnprior Mall. 

Forms should be brought to registration on the day of the walk.

After registering, you will receive an email outlining everything you need to know about the event. The first 300 registrants to raise a minimum of $25 will receive their official Ugly Toque! 

All proceeds going to the Arnprior Regional Health Foundation for the purchase of medical equipment.
