Spirit Wheel Walk Run (SWWR) events were once again successful in raising awareness of the conditions across the province. Throughout Ontario, families, friends and loved ones proudly took the opportunity to walk, wheel and run to kick off Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Awareness Month in June.
The events received attention from both public and local media, raising much needed awareness of spina bifida and hydrocephalus and elevating the profile of the conditions across Ontario.
SWWRs have become a tradition in many communities and organizers have done an incredible job making these events a day to look forward to year after year. “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.
