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 our programs.  This year, we continue to face the challenge of the global pandemic and we may not be able to gather in person.  Therefore, we are preparing for a virtually hosted event.

We could really use your help. 2021 marks our 24th annual "Walk for the Best" We hope you will be a big part of it.  On September 26th, 2021 starting at 10:00 am we will be walking within our own communities and neighbourhoods for 3-5 km to meet our pledged goals.
