Details

London’s 16th annual Strides for Change Virtual 5k Walk/Run/Wheelchair Event will be held on July 11th and 12th, 2020.

We have decided to host this year’s memorial walk/run/wheelchair in a virtual form due to current gathering restrictions. Participants can choose either July 11th or July 12th to do their 5k in the location of their choice. Please abide by current social distancing and group size rules when doing so.

We are making this event virtual by having walkers comment a picture of themselves or their group on our Facebook page or our Instagram pageCommenting a picture will also enter walkers into our draw for door prizes. Walkers can also choose to post a picture of themselves or their group on their social media pages and use our hashtag #SFCMADDLondon. We will be making a status on both of the walk days, July 11th and also July 12th, where you can comment with your photo. If you’d rather keep your photo private, you can send it to us via Messenger or at admin@maddlondon.com. Photos that are submitted will be made into a large collage and then shared on our social media. If you’d prefer your photo not be included in the collage then just make sure to let us know. Our main goal is to spread awareness and show support to our victims and survivors.

Last year, with the support of our corporate sponsors and event participants, we raised more than $24,000!  Even more impressive–over the previous fifteen years our event has raised over $287,000. Donations raised from this event are used to support our mission here in London and surrounding area. Join us to walk, run, wheelchair and remember.

About Strides for Change

Strides for Change is MADD Canada’s annual 5km walk/run/wheelchair event. This event supports our efforts to educate the public about the dangers of impaired driving and to help victims/survivors in their communities.

The campaign is also an opportunity to keep safe and sober driving top of mind during the spring and summer months when the rate of alcohol-related crashes are traditionally higher.
