This is a social event designed to get people out for a walk along the Rotary Pathway. We have designed 4 events to cater to all fitness levels and physical abilties. We have a varied array of participants from the very young to the young at heart and the finely tuned athletes to those with physical challenges who have inspired us and shown great determination in completing the event.

All proceeds raised will again go to CanTeen and be put towards the wonderful activities and camps they provide for their members. In the last 4 years we have been supporting CanTeen with this event we have raised over $75,000! These funds have gone into the vital services that CanTeen offers young people living with cancer and their families. Learn more about CanTeen here.
