Walk Her Way 5K Fundraiser


DATE: May 12 to 15

TIME: All Day

Compassion House Foundation is hosting their second annual Walk Her Way 5K fundraising event with a goal of raising $150,000 to help women battling cancer.

Compassion House Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Edmonton that supports women from across Western Canada who must leave their home for cancer care.

“Imagine leaving your community, your home, and your loved ones to travel to Edmonton for cancer treatment,” said Michelle Okere, CEO of Compassion House Foundation. “The financial impact is daunting, the emotional journey even more so. “Walk Her Way 5K is about stepping into her shoes―the hundreds of women devastated by cancer who
access our accommodations and support services each year―in a small journey to help ease the distress of the cancer journey for women.”

Walk Her Way 5K participants can register as a team or an individual, fundraise in advance, then complete a 5 km walk or run during the event period. It is actively taking place across Alberta in Edmonton, Grande Prairie, and Fort McMurray; however, participation in this virtual event is possible from anywhere.

Funds raised from the event will help women battling cancer find comfort, connection, and community during a time when they need it most through Sorrentino’s Compassion House, financial support, post-treatment programs, and operations. Proceeds will be directed towards the greatest area of need at the time.
