About Sherwood Care

Sherwood Care is a continuing care facility providing care for individuals who can no longer care for themselves. We are a voluntary organization, owned and operated by Adventist Health Systems - Alberta, a health ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.


While our residents and their needs have changed over the 50 years we have been providing care, our commitment to quality care has never wavered. We firmly believe that this is the resident’s home and we are their guests. This philosophy dictates our decisions regarding resident programming and needs. We work diligently to create as much of a homelike environment as we can.

TGP T-Shirts:

For those 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)!


Please connect with us if you haven't already picked up or received your t-shirt.


Important Notes

Please wear a mask. Queue up 6 feet apart from the next person in line, and we'll move through the process cheerfully and quickly, celebrating your fundraising in the safest way possible.

Have questions? Visit our FAQ section!


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!
