Walk with us on September 18, 2021 in The Grand Parade! Have fun while fundraising to support local charities who serve and support aging Canadians and their families across Canada.
Lutheran Community Care
Lutheran Community Care is a registered charity that provides social, developmental and spiritual services to people in the northern region of Ontario.
For over 40 years, the Care Centre has had a special focus on seniors. Our community-based Social Services for individuals and families in the Thunder Bay area offers advocacy, coordination of health care, budgeting support, supports with tasks of daily living and encouragement for greater involvement in the community.
We work to diminish of isolation of those that live alone and help seniors stay in their community-based residences. When it is time, we help seniors transition to supportive housing settings. Families too, find the transition difficult so we provide emotional support as well as information to them.
For those who do move into supportive housing, our Pastoral Care Program provides spiritual comfort and guidance to residents in eight different nursing and retirement homes.
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 received your t-shirt.
On Event Day: 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.
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.).
