CHW members, family, and friends are invited to walk in support of the Therapeutic Centre at CHW Hadassim Children and Youth Village in Israel.

Thousands of Israeli children are considered to be living at various levels of risk, due to poverty, familial dysfunction, or abuse. For current statistics, please click here. With each passing year, the Therapeutic Centre waiting-list grows, with many children increasingly dependent on its life-saving services. The money raised from the CHW Walk makes it possible for the Therapeutic Centre to counsel an average of 40 families per week. Last year’s walk raised $70,000; this year the goal is $100,000 in honour of CHW’s 100th Birthday!

This 3k or 5k walk is an all age event, so the whole family is welcome. Bring water, sunscreen, and a comfortable pair of shoes.

There will be some friendly fundraising competition, complete with prizes and a giveaway. And don’t miss out on the 100th Birthday celebrations, including live entertainment, a Kosher BBQ, a photo booth, and free swag. Come for the walk – stay for the party!

For any questions or help making an online registration page, please contact CHW Toronto Centre at 416-630-8373.

Co-chaired by Shelley Fine and Barb Rosenstein
