2021 WALK FOR THE BEST

WE HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS!

 

This year, we have been permitted to host a modified in-person event limited to 100 attendees and we would love to see you there.  


We are beyond excited to welcome you back to the 2021 Walk for the Best in person!

Beginning at 10:00am on Sunday, September 26th, 2021, The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre is hosting the walkathon at Heydenshore Park located at 589 Water Street, Whitby.  

To reserve your in-person spot, please email marla@charleshbest.com


Please bring a mask and follow all provincial COVID-19 pandemic guidelines.

 

Why participate?

  • Support your centre and advocate for type 1 diabetes (T1D)

  • Connect with us online or in person 

  • Get more pledges to receive great incentives

  • Make a difference and help support our patients with type 1 diabetes to live well

​Our annual “Walk for the Best” walkathon is a vital fundraiser for The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre that brings our patient and family community together to support all of our programs.  This year, we continue to face the challenge of the global pandemic and are limited to a 100 person gathering for our in-person component of this event.
 

For those who do not attend the in-person event, we encourage you to join virtually and walk within your own communities for 3-5 km to meet our pledged goals.  

This year marks our 24th annual "Walk for the Best". We're counting on the patients, families and communities we support to join in and be a big part of the 2021 Walk-for-the Best!. On September 26th, starting at 10:00 am, The Best Centre staff invites you, your friends, your families and neighbours to help us fundraise and enjoy a 3-5 km walk or run in support of meeting our pledged goals.
