Walk Across Canada
Over the weekend, people from across the country (literally) took the streets and walking paths to participate in Causeway’s Walk Across Canada challenge. This event runs until August 31st, and has participants tracking their kilometres whenever they go for a walk/run/roll, uploading them to our Race Roster site, and working towards a cumulative goal of “travelling” the 6,774km distance from St. John’s, NL, to Victoria, BC.
In just two days, we’ve already walked (at least) 375.86km! That’s like walking from St John’s, NL to Argentia, NL, hopping on the Marine Atlantic ferry, arriving in North Sydney, NS, and walking to New Glasgow, NS! We’re so excited to see just how far our participants can go this month, and, hopefully, together, we’ll be able to walk across Canada.
Are you interested in joining them? Don’t worry; you can still register. Registration is open until August 29th, and it costs $18 to participate. The $18 includes registration includes a limited-edition Causeway marathon water bottle and gets you in the running to win some awesome prizes!

Not only does Walk Across Canada promote positive physical and mental wellness, but it’s also a fundraiser for Causeway’s Wellness Program. The program provides a judgment-free and accessible space for Causeway clients to work on their fitness and nutrition goals. It features a fully equipped gym that includes various accessible workout equipment and is staffed by two personal trainers to help clients with their workouts and learn about fitness.
By supporting Walk Across Canada, you’re helping to improve Causeway clients’ mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. These improvements enhance their chances of being hired and build up their confidence to reach their full potential in all areas of their lives.
We’re more than halfway to our fundraising goal. Do you want to help? You can donate directly to Causeway through our Race Roster page (right) or support a specific participant’s personal fundraising goal: https://raceroster.com/events/2021/49986/walk-across-canada
