First annual ‘Walk for Aspire’

A group of Aspire parents and volunteers are getting ready to walk, ride or roll their way along the trails at Bower Ponds on June 8 for the first ever Walk for Aspire. This new event was created and organized entirely by parents of children with special needs.

Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre is a charitable organization providing hope to children with special needs, the families who love them and the communities that care for them. We provide assessment and consulting services to families, local professionals and organizations, and we operate a specialized preschool program adapted to accommodate children with a wide range of both physical and cognitive disabilities.

Walk for Aspire is open to persons of all abilities and all means of transportation (barrier free access). Registration is $40 per family or $10 per individual. The walk begins at 11 a.m. and will be followed by a BBQ hot dog lunch. Participants meet at Bower Ponds and walk the loop at their own pace.

“We are thrilled by the initiative of this amazing group of parents” said Michelle Sluchinski, executive director at Aspire. “We look forward to this being the beginning of a wonderful annual tradition.”
