Words cannot adequately express our appreciation to all who supported the Grand River Council on Aging by volunteering, walking, and donating to the Brantford Grand Parade. Your willingness to give of yourself and your time made our first attempt at an “in person” Grand Parade a wonderful experience for one and all.
Currently we have raised 88% of our $30,000 goal placing The Brantford Grand Parade in 9th place of the 22 Parade locations that walked across Canada. Five of the teams participated in virtual walks from Edmonton to Nova Scotia, on trails and sidewalks. Two of local retirement homes participated in the Parade at Home Challenge and completed walks with their staff and residents at their locations. Thanks to John Noble Home and Amber Lea Place for you participation, bringing the celebration to life for your residents!
We still have work to do to reach our goal and the Grand Parade team will continue to secure donations from those who did not have an opportunity to give before Oct 31, 2022.
Help us spread the word and encourage donations for the Grand Parade, a Celebration of a Lifetime!
