4th Annual Walk for Grace

Hi Everyone!

The 4th Annual Walk for Grace is scheduled for Sunday Sept. 7th at Bronte Provincial Park, Oakville. The day will run similar to last year with 3 trails available, 31km, 5km and 1km. The 31km trail walk will begin at 8:30am from parking area "F". If you run or bike the 31km trail you can begin this trail later than 8:30am, please chose your start time based on attending closing ceremonies at 3:15pm. The 5km trail walk/run will begin at 1:45pm right after the conclusion of the 1km kids trail walk that begins at 1pm. Deloitte professional services is again sponsoring a Harvey's BBQ this year between 12noon and 4pm. Every participant's $10 registration fee will cover the cost of entering Bronte Provincial Park (usually $13) as well as a Harvey's burger, drink and chips. To get into the park free of charge please so the gate attendent your pledge form.
