Presented by Burnaby Neighbourhood House

Burnaby Neighbourhood House and its partner agencies are organizing the Walk & Roll walkathon on Sunday, June 11, to raise funds for their community programs and services for seniors. The family-friendly walkathon will start at South House on 4460 Beresford Street and cover a distance of 2.5/5 km. Attendees will have access to information, resources, and prizes.

The Seniors Programs and Services offered by the organizers include prepared meals, grocery shopping and delivery, senior peer supports, caregiver support, seniors transportation, community adult day program, seniors social groups, and more. These programs aim to counteract social isolation in the senior community, which can lead to premature mortality, dementia, and other health issues.

Last year, more than 2,300 Burnaby seniors benefited from the programs and services offered by Burnaby Neighbourhood House and its partners. However, the need for such services is still on the rise. The Walk & Roll walkathon aims to raise funds to support the expansion of these programs, which provide vital support and social inclusion to the senior community. By participating in the walkathon, attendees can make a difference in the lives of seniors in Burnaby while enjoying a fun-filled event with their families.
