The Grand Parade

A simple step can go a long way to help the elderly.

Calling all Canadians! More than seven million of the country’s population, aged 65 years and older, needs you. On September 16, come out and show your love and support for the elderly. Join the rest of the nation in The Grand Parade, a fundraising walk created to support local charities in Canada who provide essential care and assistance to aging members of the community.

How to Participate

All locations offer a full, in-person walk event with a 2.5 km route you can loop once or twice for 5 km. The event features a walker check-in, send-off ceremonies, signed routes, rest stops, and helpful volunteers along the way.

There’s a quote in the Bible that goes “…the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old.”  Whether or not you’re religious, you know that with all the hard work they have done in their younger years, whether it be for their families or for the community, elderly people deserve to live the rest of their lives in peace. They deserve to enjoy their remaining years without worrying where their next meal will come from, how they can buy their medicine, or where they will stay for the night. Make a difference in their lives now. Register here.
