Pass the Care Forward Walk

Wherever you are and however you choose to do it, Evergreen is asking our community to join us, virtually, for a walking challenge to remember the special people in our lives who have died. Walk, dance, skip rope, climb the stairs. “Pass the care forward” to others in need.

Step 1: Choose your challenge! Decide whether you want to do one long walk/hike, a small walk each day, meet a step goal, or another walk challenge of your choice. You can do your walk anywhere! Also decide whether you want to do it on your own, as a group, or maybe challenge your friends and family to see who can cover the biggest distance or steps!

Step 2: Start fundraising! You can set up your own walk fundraising page through the link below or download our pledge form, and ask your friends and family to sponsor you. Be sure to copy the link to your page and share it through email and social media – both great ways to get the word out and increase your sponsorship donations!

Step 3: Your boots are made for walking – so get moving! Every step taken will make a difference for the people Evergreen is here to support. There are also loads of health benefits you can get from a daily walk, both mentally and physically. Win-win!

Whether you choose to walk, run or skip, every step taken and every penny raised through this walk will help individuals in Markham, Stouffville and Thornhill get the care and support they need when facing a life-threatening illness, caregiving or grief. These people are facing the toughest of challenges, but with your help we can pass the care forward to those in need and be there to ensure they get the right support.

Every step. Everywhere. Evergreen.

We will also be hosting a Memorial Event on the final day of the walk, April 23rd. More details to come!

If you can’t get involved this year but wish to support this event directly, you can make a donation through the link below or by contacting us on 416.499.2185 / info@evgcares.org.
