2024 Walk to Remember

The Walk to Remember will take place on Sunday, May 26, 2024.

Click here for the 2024 event and donation page

Please join us at the Bereaved Families Memory Garden in Springbank Park at 9:00am. This year is extra special with our second memorial stone added with new names in remembrance of our precious loved ones. This will be our first organized event in the garden since the construction of the new memorial.  

At 9:15 a.m. there will be short welcome followed by a walk through the Park.  Memory Garden location available here  

Please note: Everyone is welcome regardless of funds raised! We do appreciate if walkers can register and help raise funds for Bereaved Families – Southwest Region, or consider a personal donation. If fundraising or making a donation is not an option for you at this time, please still come out and join us!

*If you are unable to join us at the Memory Garden, please feel free to choose a location of your choice for your walk.

Fundraising Tips & Notes

Set a fundraising goal!  It should be high enough to encourage donations, but low enough that it is attainable.

A strong Page or Team Name goes a long way.  Consider including call to action words such as “Please help” or “Help honour”.

Add photos or images.  It could be a photo of the loved one you are honouring, or something symbolic.

Make the first donation.  Start your fundraising by donating to yourself!  This helps create momentum for future donations.

It starts with an ask.  Reach out to friends, family, colleagues through emails, texts and social media.  Use the tools provided or send a personal note with a link to your page or the general event page

We encourage online donations which offer immediate tax receipts.  However, if you have supporters who prefer cash or cheque donations you will be able to download a paper pledge form once you are registered or you can request one by emailing [email protected]

Please submit donations by Friday, June 7… although we will accept donations up until June 9th towards our grand total.
