About Trinity Village

We’re asking you to help push back against COVID-19. Trinity Village is a supportive and caring inclusive community, but COVID-19 shocked and surprised all of us. Our leaders are taking a long walk or cycle, from Cambridge and we’re not stopping until we get to Paris…Ontario!


Why are we doing this? We want to remember those who have passed from our community, to celebrate our community of elders, and to honour the incredibly devoted staff at Trinity Village that keep on caring and working through such a challenging time. Our leaders are walking for all this, and to fund an improved virtual visiting technology and enhanced communication system to better connect our residents and families.


The required lockdown made it very difficult for families to interact with their elders. Since we cannot predict the future of the pandemic, we are asking for your help now. Please support the Trinity Village Leadership Walkers Team today.


Building Community Since 1972!

Route Details

The TGP Team Walk allows you to register a team and fundraise as always, but with the freedom on Event Day to:

  • Walk the distance you want
  • When you want
  • Where you want

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 Covid-friendly celebration afterward (lunch, tea, barbeque, etc.).


What to Bring

A few common sense suggestions:

  • A cell phone for emergencies (recommended but not required)
  • A face mask
  • Your walking shoes
  • Snacks in case you get hungry
  • Your own water bottle, filled with icy cold water
  • Warm layers with moisture-repelling clothing in case it's cold or windy. Mid-September be be cold with rain and wind. The weather might also be gorgeous and sunny. Be sure to keep your eye on the forecast!
