It is time to register for the walkathon.   Go to www.chha.ca and click on the vancouver walk site.
If you need any help with the registration process, do contact us.
Register under Vancouver Branch if you are walking in support of Vancouver Branch, or register under the BC CHAPTER, if you are from the rest of the province outside the Greater Vancouver area.   If you wish to raise money for
your own Branch, please contact the Chapter for permission to arrange this option.
Be sure to read the “How to Register” directions as things are a bit different this year.  Set up your personal pledge page and start getting support for your walk.
This year, the funds raised by Chapter and Branch are going towards supporting hard of hearing Young Adults, to enable them to attend a Leadership Retreat at the time of the next National conference.  Our youth need to meet one another and to gain confidence and skills which will enable them to beoome our LEADERS OF TOMORROW.
Help us reach our goal in raising $8,000 in Vancouver, and in the province at large.  We can do it, together.  Lets go!
