Walk 2020 is now over! Save the date (tentatively) for Walk 2021 – September 12th to 18th 2021.
On behalf of The Compass Board, Volunteers, and Clients, thank you for making our annual fundraiser a magical one. Over 130 people participated in Walk the Walk for The Compass 2020, despite it being a challenging year and virtual event. The money we raised together as a community will directly benefit the most vulnerable in our community.
So how much did we raise? According to our wonderful treasurer, we have raised over $76,000 so far! This would not have been possible without our dedicated walkers. Each of you has provided ‘help for today, and hope for tomorrow’ to a neighbour in need.
We received a lot of positive feedback on having the whole week to walk, and we loved seeing how much fun everyone was having throughout the week. Next year we will incorporate the virtual with an in-person element. Walk the Walk for The Compass 2021 will begin on Sunday, September 12th, 2021, and end on Saturday, September 18th, 2021 (tentatively) with an in-person closing ceremony at Church of St.Marks. Information regarding next year’s Walk will be featured in our quarterly newsletter. Sign up to stay informed – www.thecompass.ca/newsletters/.
Thank you to our major sponsor Edward Jones, Clif Bars for donating delicious snacks, and Zest for Living for facilitating walk kit pickups!
