Within the counselling process setting goals is an important way to help people achieve the change they desire. Providing affordable access to counselling can help people with limited financial means to develop the skills and confidence to grow and meet their goals. Your support of Shalom produces results. As one person noted:

“[My counsellor’s] constant encouragement, and skills taught, help keep me going. A big reason I am where I am today is because of my support from the staff and my counsellor here.”

Our goals for 10,000 Steps for Shalom are:

  • to raise $35,000 to provide counselling to people whose incomes fall below the poverty line (it is our 35th anniversary after all!),
  • to promote good physical and mental health through movement,
  • to have fun and be active!

10,000 Steps for Shalom will begin at Shalom Counselling Services (9 Avondale Ave. S., Waterloo) on Saturday, September 22, 2018. Registration begins at 8:30 am with an official send off at 9:00 am. Participants will travel a route to the Iron Horse Trail, along the trail, and back to Shalom. Rest stations and distance markers will be located at various points along the route. Choose your distance of 4, 6, 8, or 10 kilometers.

Join us and start setting your goals. It could be taking 10,000 steps or 1,000 steps, fundraising $10,000 or $100. Set a goal that is right for you and help Shalom provide more affordable, accessible counselling services.
