Make a Community Health Difference

Join us as we walk to make a Community Health Difference! The 2020 Virtual Community Health walk was a huge success raising $25,000 with participation from 107 Rotarians and Rotaractors across the district. Join us to build on that success for the 2021 Poker Walk!

The 2021 Rotary AIDS & Community Health Walk allows teams to raise funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS and to support Canadian charities that increase the overall health of our communities, including Stephen Lewis Foundation, our residual beneficiary.

The 2021 event will again take place all over the district. You can walk in your house or apartment, in your backyard or neighbourhood – anywhere that you feel safe and are allowed to be!

The location and timing are up to you as is the style of walk. You can:

  • Silly walk, power walk, riff walk…
  • Walk sideways, walk backwards, walk on your hands…
  • Dress up, dress down, dress in red…

On Wednesday August 11th, we’ll get together online at 7:00 p.m. to party, chat, and enjoy the video clips of our walk in a very special YouTube celebration. More details to come!
