Every year, Walking Challenge sponsors generously donate to the event which helps us to provide you with prizes, celebrations, and all of the hours that go into coordinating the challenge.
This year, the Walking Challenge has been met with some big decisions, and made big changes. Our sponsors have been strong supporters of the event, and have continued to provide their support to this important event as the NWTRPA reflects on what a name change, and decolonization mean to our organization.
Thank you sponsors, from the bottom of our heart for your amazing, and committed support to keep NWT residents healthy and moving their bodies.
