Hampton residents raise TCT funds

Walk at McDonald Park raises $750 for trail program

Residents of the Hampton House in Chilliwack were in fine form during a recent fundraiser hike.

The group of seniors took a trip to McDonald Park in Abbotsford for their second annual Toonies for the Trail, a fundraiser to help completely link the Trans Canada Trail. This year, they managed to raise $750 for their cause.

Their efforts were bolstered by a large anonymous donation, and a matching grant from the federal government.

The Hampton residents aren’t done their fundraising efforts for the year. They are taking a short break then will do their annual Silver Fox Block Walk for Terry Fox on September 1. The walk gets residents out and about, as they make their way around the block at various speeds and chat about the friends and family they’ve loved and lost to cancer.
