A Rousing Show of Support!
As we gear up for our 13th Annual Boardwalk’s Walk for Wellspring, it’s only fitting to pay tribute to everyone who came out in support of last year’s event! Raising a fabulous $87,667 (the most money in the history of the event), over 190 participants walked last September to express their love and support for friends and family affected by cancer and to honour those lost to the disease. Many Wellspring members contributed to this remarkable total, making the 2016 Walk an unprecedented success!
So now it’s time to tie up our laces once again and get ready for September 9th!

A Sign of Support …
2017 has been a year of protest marches and demonstrations. Thoughts and opinions have been made clear through the use of very creative signs. In keeping with this theme, we’re encouraging you to express yourself by carrying your own ‘Sign of Support’ at our Walk. Make your own, or carry one of ours (limited number available). Consider making a sign to draw attention to your team’s name; to honour or remember a loved one or to show your support for Wellspring. Get creative! (Positive messages please!) This year, let’s send a strong ‘Sign of Support’ so that London knows that Wellspring is here to provide no-cost programs and services to everyone affected by cancer!

Support that lasts!
The 2017 Boardwalk’s Walk for Wellspring is dedicated to the memory of Wellspring member Ron Hunt. Ron was part of a very special Patients’ Support group that began in October, 2014.
Although the formal program finished 3 years ago, members of the group have continued to meet informally to offer each other encouragement, comfort and support!
