Be part of a collective rally that brings together thousands of people whose lives are touched by T1D every day, and help change the face of T1D forever. We’re at a new location this year: Boyce Gyro Beach Park in Kelowna! The day starts early with food, music, games and activities for our estimated 500 participants: families, friends and neighbours of those afflicted with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and members of the general public. The walk is an easy 1.6km up and down Lakeshore between Gyro and Rotary beaches, and finishes with a hot dog lunch! In the 17 years it has been in Kelowna, the Sun Life Walk has raised over $2 million to help cure, better treat, and prevent T1D. Please join us at this year’s Walk, and support the incredible research projects that are paving the way to a world without T1D.
