The 19th Annual Wing Kei Walkathon

Join us for the 19th Annual Wing Kei Walkathon on Saturday, June 22. Rain or shine, we’ll be walking in support of senior care in Calgary. This year the first $10,000 of donations received goes 4x as far*! 

Once $10,000 is raised every $1 of it will be quadrupled by sponsors, so every $1 donated becomes $4. Together, we will raise $240,000 for Calgary’s seniors so they continue receiving the dedicated, exemplary care, they deserve. Hear the impact your donation will make in seniors’ own words on Our Stories.

Sign up now as a walker and start fundraising online via CanadaHelps or offline. You can download the Pledge Form and/or Team Form at the bottom of this page.

The family-friendly walkathon starts off with a 30-minute opening ceremony at 10:00 am at Sien Lok Park. You can then walk or run the scenic course, which takes approximately 45 – 60 min to complete. It’s not a race, so enjoy the views, the company, and do the course at your own pace.  Afterwards, continue to enjoy yourself at the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre where there will be lunch, various games, display booths and indoor performances. There will be several multicultural performances, including dancing, drumming and martial arts, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
