  • Gather with your covid-safe bubble (or on your own)
  • Map out a safe 2-5 km route
  • Let someone know where you are
  • Bring a cell phone in case of emergency
  • Share online as you go! #walkforbissell #cnoy21
  • Keep fundraising (half of all fundraising happens in the last week!)
  • Be safe and have fun!

About Bissell Centre

Walk for Bissell!


Too many individuals and families are struggling in our community, especially during winter’s coldest months. On February 20, brave the cold with us to change lives.


Guided by a passionate concern for the dignity and well-being of each individual, we work to eliminate poverty in our community. We offer an expansive network of programs and resources to help vulnerable Edmontonians find housing, employment, family supports, mental health services, and more.


Funds raised will support our Community Space, which allows individuals to walk in out of the cold and gain not only immediate access to basic needs like food, clothing, shelter and hygiene facilities, but the opportunity to seek life-changing supports to help empower them to move from poverty to prosperity. Watch the video tour!


Together, we can create change and re-write the future for those who feel hopeless, afraid, and alone.
