Important Notes

We are optimistic to have a safe, community-building, in-person walk together this year! With plenty of outdoor space and lot's of room to walk, we know everyone can have an enjoyable experience!


Should you prefer, virtual walking (walk anywhere and anytime during February) is an option for those unable to attend the in-person walk. Solo or with your team, this is a great option for those who wish to have a smaller group and want to experience a different place in the Shuswap.


There is a Facebook event we encourage walkers to link to to indicate whether you are planning to attend the in-person event and to see updates and information as details come about! https://fb.me/e/24FhjPfQS

Waivers

All participants must register online this year and accept the electronic waiver.

  • When they register online, they will automatically accept an electronic waiver, which is all that is needed for adults.
  • If you have youth or children on your team, they will need to have their parent or guardian sign a printed paper waiver.
  • Someone on your team (like you!) must take a photo of all child/youth waivers and send them to waivers@cnoy.org.
