Everyone loves a parade! And we are planning a grand one!

On Saturday, September 16th, the WDMH Foundation is hosting a super-fun, family-friendly fundraising walk called The Grand Parade!

Team captains can sign up online and create teams of friends and family to raise funds and walk together. The walk – 2.5 or 5 kilometres – will take place around Winchester. We start right beside the new location, pass by the current Dundas Manor and stop for a rest at Sweet Corner Park downtown. Every walker who raises $150 (adult) or $75 (youth) or more qualifies for a Grand Parade t-shirt. If you are one of the first 100 people to raise $500, you also receive a special hoodie! And, if you would like to walk but don’t want to start a team, please joins the WDMH Foundation one!

“This event is an important fundraiser for us and will support our campaign to build the new Dundas Manor,” explains Cindy Ault Peters, Campaign Assistant. “We hope everyone will come out and join us for a walk around Winchester in support of the new Dundas Manor.”

The estimated cost of the new Dundas Manor is $63 million. The provincial government is providing approximately $45 million. Our campaign goal is $18 million. And we’re well on our way! To date, more than $11.2 million has been given by our generous community. We are so grateful!

“No experience is required for the walk – just a big heart and a desire to help,” sums up Cindy Ault Peters. “For all the details, to sign up, or to donate, please visit https://thegrandparade.org/location/winchester.”
