Join Team Adelaide this Saturday, August 5, at Maplewood Hall in Oxford Mills for a 2 or 5 km walk/run to celebrate raising over $50,000 for children’s hospitals since 2011. Team Adelaide is a group of family and friends who have been witness to how much our local children’s hospitals can change lives, and we gather each year to raise money to give back to those same hospitals.
In 2011, inspired by the care received at SickKids Hospital in Toronto, Team Adelaide came together to raise money in support of Children’s Hospitals by joining the Walk for Miracles being held annually at that point.
Adelaide and her family moved to the Ottawa area in 2013, and began their involvement with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). The care and support received there continues to be amazing, and Team Adelaide walked in the Ottawa Walk for Miracles, raising money for CHEO, in both 2013 and 2014.
In 2015, the Walk for Miracles was no longer supported, but we at Team Adelaide still believe that raising money for CHEO is one of the best ways we can give back. We began ‘flying solo’ for the first time, with a walk of our own in August, 2015, and again in August, 2016. Now, in 2017, we are walking in celebration, having surpassed $50,000 raised overall.
We invite and welcome anyone in the community to come and join us for our walk around beautiful Oxford Mills. More information is available on our website (www.teamadelaide.net). We look forward to meeting new neighbours and seeing old friends.
