FAQs

When can I make my moves?

Participants can start tracking their movement on May 1st.

Those who register before that date will have their fitness stats reset at midnight on April 30th so we all start fresh on May 1st!

For the rest of the month, you can walk, run, or pole however and whenever you'd like! Set a fitness goal and track towards that goal throughout May.

What am I fundraising for?

This year, donations will help buy upgraded pulmonary function testing (PFT) equipment at the Health Centre.

Recent research has shown that patients with common lung diseases such as asthma, COPD, and lung fibrosis are significantly more likely to develop cardiovascular disease. At WPSHC, we strive to provide the cardio-respiratory services needed for consultation, testing, and treatment where we live and work.

This piece of new equipment will complete the components necessary to provide the highest level of testing for diagnosis and treatment. This means that we can provide care in our community and eliminate the need for our cardio-respiratory patients to travel outside the area.

Any pledges collected above and beyond the purchase of the PFT equipment will be designated to the next highest priority of the Health Centre.

Is there a minimum fundraising amount required to participate?

There is no minimum fundraising amount.

Set a goal. Go for it... blow past it!

But pledges count - big time! We need you to gather as many pledges as you can. It is all about health. Your goal each day will pump your heart and your pledges will keep hearts pumping at the Health Centre! And that is what it is all about.

Am I eligible to earn a prize?

Participants who raise more than $300.00 will earn a FREE Chilly Moose tumbler.

MADE IN CANADA! The 20oz (590ml) Killarney Tumbler is double-wall vacuum insulated and made with premium food-grade stainless steel. Includes a clear, flip-top spill-resistant lid.
