We are delighted to confirm our 25th Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC), Anniversary picnic and fun social event, as well as our annual “26 REASONS TO WALK/RUN/RIDE” fundraiser will be on Saturday, June 24, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 4 PM. As in the past, the Dolph picnic area at Riverside Park, 49 King Street West, Cambridge, Ontario will be our walk and picnic location. We want you, and your family, to attend and we encourage you to participate in any way you can. Join the picnic fun and the optional WALK/RUN/RIDE to raise vasculitis awareness and funds for research. Enjoy your choice of tasty wraps, salads, chips, and drinks.

Try your luck in a 50:50 draw, silent auction, prize draws, and enjoy some fun entertainment. Donated prizes for the silent auction etc. are always needed and welcome, please let us know if you can contribute something. This year we’ll feature some great family fun with an all-ages entertainment program with a selection of exotic animals from ZooToYou, see the following link for more info:

As you know, Walk/Run/Ride sponsors contribute to you, and they get a tax deduction receipt for their donation. Even if you are not able to attend, or are unable to walk, just let us know you need a volunteer to walk for you. Together we can make a difference! Your family and friends are welcome to join us, for the picnic, and/or walk. Please register everyone by June 24, 2023 on our new Canada Helps website located at this link.

We are sure your friends and family will support our goal to heighten vasculitis awareness while helping to raise funds for research.
