Your participation in The Grand Parade is a moment to take to the streets across Canada and publicly honour aging friends and family, fundraising on behalf of local charities who support them.
This pandemic has revealed how our aging population is so often overlooked. Your participation in the TGP Team Walk this year is more important than ever - by walking and fundraising for your local TGP charity, you are declaring solidarity with their purpose and service while making a valuable financial impact.
This year we can’t gather together in large groups as we hoped, but we’re not letting Covid stop us from fundraising for our aging family and friends! On Event Day, September 18, 2021, we’re self-organizing into smaller, Covid-friendly teams where we can walk together safely.
The TGP Team Walk (as we’re now calling it), allows you to register a team and fundraise as always, but with the freedom on Event Day to:
Most teams will decide to walk in the morning, choosing between 1 km or 5 km distances, likely on a paved park pathway or equivalent. Many will end with a small safe Covid-friendly celebration afterward (lunch, tea, barbeque, etc.).
For adults who raise $150 or more, we’ll be thanking you for your efforts with a sweet, super-soft TGP t-shirt that you’ll be proud to wear (and maybe even brag about)!
