Thanks to your support, the first annual Strides for Caregivers was a great success, surpassing our fundraising goal. From Victoria to St. John's, over 1,000 participants laced up their walking shoes and raised over $60,000 in a day of 5K walks to help support family caregivers. 

Strides for Caregivers raises awareness and funds for the millions of unpaid family caregivers in Canada. Thank you, and we'll see you again next year!

Thank you for your generous sponsorship of this national event.
