Sunday September 7, 2014, will mark Thunder Bay's inaugural Walk Across Canada for Chiari Malformation. Walk Committee members have spent months getting ready for this family and pet friendly event. Registration begins at 11am at Chapples Park with the walk starting at 12 noon. Donations will be accepted for the Canadian Chiari Association. Light refreshments, entertainment, games, a silent auction table, attendance prizes and a presentation by the dog Demo Team from The Dog Classroom are all scheduled for after the walk. Adult sized t-shirts and pet bandanas will be available for purchase. We hope to have a good turn-out for this free event. Online donations can be made directly at the CCA's website. I will be on Around Town on Thursday August 21st for a short interview to promote the walk. Air times are 6:25pm and 11:25pm on Global and 11:30pm on CKPR.
