Every year, we come together as a community to honour, celebrate, and remember our loved ones who are no longer with us. Our annual Walk to Remember is a chance for families to get together and feel connected with their community.

Registration is now open for our much-loved annual fundraising event, 5K Walk to Remember, taking place on Saturday, September 30, 2023 at Lakeside Park in Mississauga (2268 Lakeshore Rd West) in partnership with BFO-Toronto. The event will start at 9:30 a.m. EST and will finish before 1:00 p.m. EST. 


Registration is free!

Every donation of $20 or more is eligible for a charitable tax receipt.

Honour a loved one who has passed away by raising money in their name. You can wear something to commemorate them, or since our Walk to Remember is taking place on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation this year, you may choose to wear an orange shirt to honour the Indigenous children that were forced to attend residential schools, and to honour their families and communities.

You are welcome to do the 5km walk whenever and wherever you'd like from now until September 30. Some people opt to do the walk on their own time in addition to joining us in-person when we gather as a community on September 30. We'll have a 5km route mapped out for participants on September 30. This is a rain or shine, and dog-friendly event!

This year we have a goal of raising a total of $100,000 so we can reduce wait times and continue to provide grief supports free-of-charge for those who need it. We will be partnering with BFO-Toronto to organize this event. Proceeds from teams registered on this page will be dedicated to the Centre for Grief and Healing - BFO Halton/Peel. 

Your support is vital: for every $8,230 we raise, we can run a support group. For every $207, we can train a new volunteer. Thank you for helping us to raise much-needed funds so we can provide essential services to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one!
