Join Team Caledon: Walk Run Or Ride To Improve Health Care Close To Home

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

Hey Caledon! There is one week left in the virtual Headwaters Walk, Run or Ride for Headwaters event! Headwaters Health Care Centre is considered “our hospital” by many residents of Caledon. With family and friends you can raise funds for your local hospital while exploring all the beauty that Dufferin-Caledon has to offer.

There is no registration fee, and no fundraising minimums. Many municipalities in the Dufferin-Caledon communities are taking part in a municipality challenge. You can join #TeamCaledon to help raise funds for critically needed equipment at Headwaters. Your support would mean better health care, close to home.

Some of the municipalities that are participating include: Caledon, Amaranth, Grand Valley, Mono, Orangeville and Shelburne. So let’s make #CaledonProud

Here’s what the Mayors are saying to encourage their town to get out and get active:

“This fall I encourage the Caledon community to get active in support of the Headwaters Health Care Foundation” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “Enjoy a walk, ride or run along the many beautiful trails here in Caledon, and help make a positive impact in our community and health care system”.

“I am delighted to see local municipalities participate in Walk, Ride, Run for Headwaters. As Captain of Team Mono, I encourage everyone to get involved to reach and exceed the fundraising goal. Let’s show support for our healthcare workers and local hospital!” said Mono Mayor John Creelman.

“This September, I would like to challenge the residents of Orangeville to join me in this year’s Virtual Walk, Run, Ride for Headwaters. Let’s work together to reach our fundraising goal in support of our Hospital and front line workers!” added Orangeville Mayor Sandy Brown.

“The Staff and Council of the Township of Amaranth are thrilled to be supporting the virtual Walk, Ride, Run for Headwaters. We are encouraging all community members to get outside to make a difference for our local Hospital. Join Team Amaranth today and start raising funds to assist in the purchase of new or replacement equipment at Headwaters Health Care Centre.”

Kendra Goss, Coordinator of Community Engagement explained, “The Walk, Run, Ride is a fantastic virtual event where many people can enjoy their own community at their own pace, while raising urgent funds for Headwaters. The government does not provide funding for Hospital equipment (outside of large-scale capital builds), so it is up to us to fund these equipment needs and provide excellent health care, close to home.”
