After grabbing a snack and water at the half-way point, walkers will retrace their steps back to the F. J. Davey Home Parking lot. You may then pick up your Participant bag, stroll the Walkway to Health and stop at the Gazebo for a fundraising BBQ. Don't forget to use the coupon in your Participant bag for a hotdog on us!

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!

About F.J. Davey Home Foundation

When we see a resident lip syncing the words to songs, tapping their feet or swaying to the beat of the music, the Foundation wants to do more to support residents in their home at the F. J. Davey Home. Every time, we see a mobile lift in use transferring a resident from their bed to a wheel chair, the Foundation wants to do more. Physical and comfort needs are varied, depending upon resident mobility and complex health care issues. The Foundation strives to support and enhance the quality of life and comforts for the residents of the F. J. Davey Home.


Help your loved one, your neighbour or friend by joining in the Grand Parade. Be a captain, form a team, reach out to families and friends and raise money to support F. J. Davey Home residents! Please be a part of the Grand Parade!
