Walk the Walk for The Compass!
"The "Walk" is our signature fundraising event. It has been, and continues to be, ever increasingly successful.
This is vital from a financial perspective because the demands for Compass services to support those requiring a hand up, is increasing annually and outpaces the rate of inflation. Demand over the last year increased in the order of 13%. Success of the "Walk" is also quantified by the level of community engagement.
We continue to set new records for Walk participants with over 100 enthusiastic walkers this year. All were emblazoned with bright red Compass shirts, visible in the populated areas of Port Credit, through parks and waterfront trails. This degree of community involvement raises overall awareness of the Compass, our services and the needs of our clients.
We attract members of our political leadership who endorse the event. This year we were visited by: Mayor Bonnie Crombie, Ward 1 Councilor, Stephen Dasko, Ward 2 Councilor, Karen Ras, MPP Rudy Cuzzetto and MP, Sven Spengemann.
