Up and Coming Events & Programs 2020



Walking Through Grief and Loss Support Walk

'Walking in nature is therapy for the body and soul" - Unknown

We will continue our Support Walks into the winter months as a drop-in group that will meet at Spraylakes Sawmill Family Sports Centre (Main Doors) every Tuesday. We meet at 10 am and walk outside if weather premits with the options of walking inside. We start walk at 10:00 am. We share an enjoyable 45-minute walk with the option of continuing the conversation and socializing at a local coffee shop afterwards.

Please note: This is NOT intended to be therapeutic group but to provide participants with an opportunity to experience the beauty of nature (or the companionship at Spraylakes indoors) and walk alongside others who are on a similar journey.

Our walks are free, with drop-in fees at Spraylakes covered by the Cochrane and Area Hospice Society.

If you are interested in volunteering to host a walk, please go to the following link:
