UPDATE: September 5, 2018.
The sunny day provided a good backdrop for a beautiful walk at Point Pleasant Park. The walk around was 3.1 km. The group was very enthusiastic and many walkers went around 3 times.
The first prize, a tour around Nova Scotia by private plane, was given to Tatum, an 11 year old girl with CRPS. Second prize was a prize package from Tim Hortons and the Pita Pit provided 3rd prize.
We thank Kristen Cameron and her team for the hard work they did to make the WALK a success.
