About the Event
On September 12, 2009 Heidi Lee Ferguson (nee Bogner) lost her life due to a tragic domestic dispute with her estranged husband. In remembrance of her life, the Ferguson Memorial Walk was created in 2012 to raise awareness and prevent future violence against women.
This year's newly named Heidi's Walk will be hosted by Family Transition Place (FTP), proudly honouring the legacy of the Ferguson Memorial Walk. This annual event has raised over $135,000 in support of FTP's programs and services. This year, we invite you to join us on a virtual 5 km walk, run or bike. From August 24th to September 20th, track your distance and share your accomplishments. Prizes will be awarded to participants with major fundraising milestones. We'll provide you with fundraising resources to inspire your networks, fun route options around Orangeville, accomplishment badges and ways to track your distance before the event begins on August 24th.
We are committed to reaching our $15,000 goal this year but we'll need your help. By setting up your own fundraising page, sharing your accomplishments and asking your friends, family members and co-workers for their support of your efforts, you will be helping us get closer to that goal. Together, we can make a difference.
This year's event raised $10,667 in support of FTP's essential programs and services!
