Since it's inception, Walk'n'Roll has raised over $435,000 towards community programs.
Our annual Walk‘n’Roll fundraiser encourages people with physical disabilities or aphasia, to get active and out in their communities, supporting vital programs that help independence, improved communication, community participation and improves health and fitness as a bonus.
We hope you can be a part of it!

How will the funds be used?
Our moto is, “There is life after stroke.” We do our best to assure this. However, without the funds raised at the Walk ‘n’ Roll, it would not be possible to provide this to our members.
SOS Niagara has grown into a thriving support group that helps people connect with peers, exchange information and resources, explore the personal impact of stroke and build supportive relationships. Meetings are the second Monday of every month, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Niagara Region Headquarters, 1815 Sir Isaac Brock Way, Thorold, Ontario.
Guest speakers are invited to meetings to cover topics such as: driver’s licence reinstatement, Osteopathy, Naturopathy, meditation, health and wellness, psychotherapy, accessibility, etc. Social activities are organized throughout the year which are partially subsidized to make it more affordable to members. Last year’s events included a free summer barbeque, a trip to Oh Canada Eh! dinner theatre, bowling and a Christmas dinner party including gifts for everyone. On the last Monday of every month, a social night is organized which has included activities such as Euchre, talent night and craft night, etc.
Funds raised from the Walk ‘n’ Roll has not only helped pay for the above activities but also the cost of SOS Niagara brochures and banner, website, Walk ‘n’ Roll t-shirts and materials for monthly meetings.
Together, with your support, we can reach our fundraising goal. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
