On September 16, folks in Chatham-Kent will join thousands of others across Canada in The Grand Parade, a 2.5 km walk-a-thon in celebration and support of aging Canadians. Family Service Kent is hosting this super-fun, family-friendly fundraising walk to benefit the agency’s programs that focus on serving older adults.
Community Support Services at Family Service Kent provides safe, accessible, and affordable services in the community to enhance independence and quality of life. CSS services include door-to-door transportation, home help services, and frozen meals. Funds will also benefit older adults who access the Community Counselling Program, which is a rapidly growing need in our community. Our fundraising goal is to raise $27,000 with the support of 20+ teams and 150+ walkers.
Register for The Grand Parade – Chatham-Kent! There is no registration fee to participate in The Grand Parade, but we encourage all participants to fundraise. As a goal, most walkers raise around $250, sometimes much more! When you go the extra mile and raise $150+ (or $75+ if you’re a whippersnapper under 18), we’ll recognize your efforts with our oh-so stylish 2023 TGP t-shirt which you can pick-up on TGP Day. If you are one of the first 100 people across Canada to raise at least $500 in verified funds (aka. online donations, not cash pledges), you will be mailed your very own limited edition TGP hooded sweatshirt.
