On Saturday September 17, 2016 between 11-1 PM Abbotsford Brain Injury Drop-in will be meeting at Mill Lake Parks Bevan St Picnic Shelter for a fundraising walkathon to be followed at 12 noon by a picnic lunch at the Bevan St picnic shelter(bring a bag lunch, water and a light snack will be provided). This event is in conjunction with the Global Brain Injury Picnic being held around the world on this date. We will be joined for the picnic portion of the event by Fraser Valley Brain Injury Association, and other Brain Injury programs in the Fraser Valley.
Participants in the walkathon will consist of Abbotsford Brain Injury Drop-in members, FVBIA Members, as well as any family, caregivers or support persons who would like to assist us to raise some money for special events. Participants will collect pledges from family, friends and support people in their community. We recommend that participants do not go door to door but just ask people who they know. Those who choose to do so will walk around Mill Lake a 2.35 km walk. For those that find that too much we will have a shorter 1km track so that all may participate regardless of their abilities. Feel free to bring wheel chairs, walkers, scooter.
