Hosting a Spirit Wheel Walk Run (SWWR) event is an ideal way to increase awareness of spina bifida and hydrocephalus in YOUR community. SWWR events are held through June, in celebration of Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Awareness Month. All proceeds benefit SB&H programs, services and support.

Register, and receive our unique SWWR event T-shirts. These shirts are always a big hit with participants and encourage people in your neighbourhood to ask questions about the events and learn more about the conditions.

SWWR events are a fun way to engage your family, friends and local community!

YOU pick the day.
YOU pick the location.
YOU choose the route.

In 2013, more than 700 participants gathered together at 18 SWWR events in communities across Ontario. These events generated more than $40,000 for the Association! See our highlights from some of the 2013 SWWR events.

“Community” is the strength of each and every SWWR, no matter how large or how small they may be. It’s the dedication and passion of the people involved that makes this grassroots campaign a roaring success. 

SB&H is grateful to everyone who participated and to all the SWWR volunteers and donors.

On June 29, Erin and her family and friends had a lovely one hour walk around Harris Park and along the Thames River in London complete with posters, tunes, sbhao t-shirts and bracelets and a lot of spirit. Although the weather was forecast for thunder and lightning, we ended up with no rain and the sun broke through by the finish.
