‘We may be apart, but together we can help China’s most vulnerable children
go the distance.’

We are in this Together!

We all know everything is different this year. So is Walk the Wall. One thing hasn’t changed: the opportunity to transform the lives of children with disabilities.

On September 26, 2020 you can be part of a global event
to support International China Concern (ICC).

Walk the Wall is going Virtual!

What’s different this year?

Instead of an annual walk organized by ICC Canada, this year you’ll be able to design your own walk!

Walk the Wall is going back to its roots! On September 26, walkers from all around the world will join with friends and family to walk in their local neighbourhoods, parks - or just around the block! From the moment the sun rises in Australia until it sets on the west coast of North America, you’ll be joined by thousands of people who are helping us achieve the goal of walking a total of 15,500 KM in one day! Every step that you walk brings us closer to that goal, and every dollar that you raise enables struggling children with disabilities and their families to ‘go the distance’.

_________________________

Date: Saturday, September 26, 2020

Location: The comfort and safety of your own local hiking trail, neighbourhood, or park.

Distance: You decide! You can walk the traditional 10K, 5km or whatever you'd like.

_________________________

What will your distance be this year?

This year your ‘distance’ may be our traditional 10 km walk, a family 3km walk, or a custom length walk that you choose. Whatever your distance, we’re going to be with you all the way, cheering you on – not in person but through your phone! Registering is easy - sign up as an individual, join a team, or create a team of your own. Then help spread the word and raise funds for vulnerable children in China by telling your friends about Walk the Wall and inviting friends and family to donate.

Get your Walk the Wall 2020 t-shirt!

T-shirts this year are optional, but we'd love for you to purchase one and show them off as you walk and share on social media. Let’s show everyone how we're in this together and helping children in China go the distance!

T-shirts available for BC Residents only. We are pre-ordering 125 shirts. They will be first come first serve. Each shirt is $10 and can be picked up at our Burnaby office (7B-5707 Sidley Street).  Call Karen Chu at 604-322-3119 to arrange pick up.

Should I walk in this challenging Covid-19 year?  

The short answer is, ‘Yes’! This year’s walk is probably the most important walk we have ever done. Without you (signing up, getting sponsors and helping us raise vital funds) the children and families we serve won’t be able to go the distance. But with your help and the work of ICC, they can not only go the distance, they can also break through the prejudice, stigma, poverty and exclusion to build better lives and a better China.

Yes, much has changed in 2020, but let’s not allow Covid-19 to take away our opportunity to make such a vital difference. Join thousands of walkers around the world and help us reach our goal of walking 15,000km in one day and raise the funds that enable children with disabilities to go the distance!
