The inaugural Fraser Valley Walk for Kids Help Phone is taking place in Abbotsford on May 2, 2010. This annual fundraising event takes place across Canada – this year we will have a walk in the Fraser Valley!
This 5KM walk takes place at Mill Lake Park #1 North (parking lot is accessible from Mill Lake Rd). The walk is twice around the park, through the trails, over the boardwalk & across the lake. Kids, dogs, bikes, scooters and wagons are all welcome – bring the family down to help support this awesome service for Canadian kids who needs someone to talk to.
Abbotsford’s Eileen Fisher is a local Mom who wanted to bring awareness of this great service, and the fundraising required to make it happen, to the Fraser Valley. “I was on the walk in White Rock last year (which is not happening there this year) and really thought that awareness of KHP was something that needed to be brought out to the Fraser Valley”. Way to go, Eileen!
Registration for the 2010 Walk for Kids Help Phone is free, with no minimum fundraising required.
