Where is the Walk of Life?
The walk will take place at the Glenridge Quarry and all funds raised will go directly to the provision of services in our program. By participating in this national event, we will also receive support from the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada (the sponsors of this walk) based on a percentage of what we are able to raise on our own. We need the generous support of the Niagara community to take full advantage of this opportunity.
