Walk for Lyme Jen’s Journey

May 5 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Free

Our event this year honors a courageous and caring young woman named Jen Meers.  Many Lymies in Kamloops and surrounding communities know Jen as she has helped so many of us navigate this difficult journey.

Walk for Lyme – Jen’s Journey is an event where those affected by Lyme Disease can support one another, while at the same time demonstrating to the rest of Canada that there is indeed, many of us suffering from this disease in British Columbia.

We will share important information with family, friends and the general public about the barriers Lyme disease patients face with respect to diagnosis and treatment.

We will educate people about Lyme disease prevention.

This is a free event. Everyone is welcome. However, registration is required. If you would like a T-shirt or to donate, payment can be made by credit card or e-transfer. Please note that credit card payments carry an additional fee of 2.9% plus .30 per transaction.

The cut-off date for ordering T-shirts is Thursday April 11th.

Our event is a fundraiser. Monies raised will support the G. Magnotta Foundation in the area of research for Canadians.  If you cannot make the event this year, but would still like to donate, we recommend simply sending an e-transfer to [email protected]. Tax receipts will be issued with a minimum donation of $25.00. IMPORTANT: Please put your full name and address in the message area of the money transfer.

Two walking routes are planned. For those people actively struggling with symptoms, you will be lead around the park for a leisurely stroll. For those of us who are able, we will be walking a route over the Overlander Bridge and back.
