Can I run the route? +

Yes, go for it. Runner welcome!

Will the Walk to Rebuild be cancelled if it's raining? +

Rain or snow will not stop us from getting out and enjoying the outdoors so we can fundraise for HeroWork's Indigenous Perspectives Society project. Dress as according to the weather. There will be warming stations.

Are dogs allowed? +

Yes, so long as they are well-behaved and kept on leash. We just ask that you start at the back of the walk for safety, and so that they don’t get in the way of fellow walkers.

Can we take strollers on the walk/run with us? +

Yes! We just ask that walkers with strollers start at the back of the run for safety, so that they don’t get in the way of fellow walkers.

Are tickets refundable? +

Tickets are non-refundable as registration fees are used to help support the event costs and our fundraising efforts. If you have questions, contact
