2023 Canadian Walk for Veterans (Fraser Valley) Saturday September 23

Fraser Valley – The annual Canadian Walk for Veterans (Fraser Valley) takes place again at Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford, on Saturday, September 23.

The theme for this year’s Canadian Walk for Veterans, Heroes of the Homefront, recognizes the contributions made by military families who play a critical role in enhancing the well-being of military personnel and veterans, particularly those with service-related health conditions.

The Canadian Walk for Veterans is held annually across Canada and invites communities to walk shoulder-to-shoulder in recognition and celebration of our serving military and veterans.
 
Our primary goal is to provide Canadians the opportunity to learn about the challenges faced by those who serve our country, to celebrate their contributions, and express gratitude for the sacrifices they make on our behalf.” -Marc Burchell, Founder & National Organizer, Canadian Walk for Veterans
