The 10th Annual Walk for Wellness will be returning with partners the Town of Aurora and Activate Aurora on Saturday April 13, 2019. The walk will take place on the indoor track at the Aurora Family Leisure Complex from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Everyone interested in an active lifestyle and/or in supporting CHATS is welcome to attend.
There are a variety of ways to participate in the year’s walk!
As always, the focus of this year’s event is to raise much needed funds for seniors programs while promoting an active lifestyle. Seniors are Ontario’s fasting growing demographic, and government funding alone is not enough to ensure that our seniors will have the support they need now and into the future.
All proceeds from the Walk for Wellness will go to CHATS services that support caregivers and allow seniors to be able to continue to live safely and independently in their own homes.
The 2019 Walk for Wellness is the perfect way to make a positive impact on our community. We need your help in this year's walk to build awareness of the challenges faced by older adults in our community and to support the fundraising needed to help change the trajectory of an older person's life!
