InspireHealth’s 8th Annual Rain Walk Returns
March 9th, 2024
This March, join us once again for InspireHealth’s annual Rain Walk to help raise critical funds towards supportive cancer care.
This year, we invite you to join one of our meet-ups in Vancouver, Victoria, and Kelowna, join our virtual walk, or walk your own route on a date and time that works for you.
Whatever you chose, every Rain Walker helps InspireHealth to continue providing patients with free group programming and one-on-one appointments with our clinical team – every dollar makes a difference!
Rain Walk Locations
Every step has a story.
InspireHealth’s annual Rain Walk is an inclusive event that brings our communities together to raise funds to support programs and services that improve the health, well-being, and quality of life of people affected by cancer.
Participants can join one of our three community walks in Vancouver, Victoria, and Kelowna, or walk with us wherever you are at any time or location.
Help us reach our goal of raising $100,000 towards supportive cancer care! Join as an individual, or create a team with your family, friends, or colleagues.
Can’t join us? Donate or sponsor a Rain Walker to help us reach our goal.
Everything you need to know about your local Rain Walk can be found here.
“I would really encourage people to support InspireHealth because the work they do is invaluable.” – Ron B.
Why We Walk
- Cancer touches us all. Every 20 mins, someone in British Columbia is diagnosed with cancer. Your participation and fundraising for the Rain Walk ensures that, as a non-profit, we can keep our doors open to support those who need it most. You participation makes a tangible difference in the lives of those we serve.
- When you join the Rain Walk, you show the power of the community and that those on their cancer journey are not alone. Wherever we walk, we walk together.
General Event Information
On the day of Rain Walk, March 9th, registered participants, friends and family will get together and walk in their communities to show their support for everyone impacted by cancer!
