About BC Walk

The BC Walk is Going VIRTUAL!

Let's stand together as we walk alone.

All donations and contributions made to our event will be matched by an anonymous donor dollar for dollar!

Registration Fee is $0 so everyone can join in the fun! Please consider showing your support for the cause by making a personal donation (for a tax receipt) instead.

Your registration also counts you for the Huntington Heroes National Virtual Walk!

Walk, Run or Roll!

No matter your choice of exercise, or where you take part from, join us in improving lives of those affected by HD together but apart. This year, everyone will exercise with their closest family and friends (50 max) while socially distanced wherever is the most convenient to them. We encourage everyone to track their kilometres travelled and post pictures using the hashtag #BCwalk4HD.

Don't forget the theme is Huntington Heroes, celebrating the everyday heroes that make up the HD Community. Walk dressed as your favourite hero (superheroes, musicians, athletes, service people, etc). Prizes are available for the best costume!
