Info for the 2014 Carter's Crew!

Please note that all Great Strides participants need to take the Park & Ride to Snow Valley as there are only limited spots at the site which are reserved for those with CF, and volunteers. Once again they will be chartering two Edmonton Transit City buses that will go between Century Park, located at 23rd Ave & 111th Street, to Snow Valley ski hill and back again.   Buses start rolling at 8:30 am & the last bus before the walk leaves Century Park at 10!  Buses start running again after the walk until 1:30.

Dave and I will be on site around 9am, and we strongly recommend that you plan to be there early.....especially if you have any cash/cheques/forms to turn in.  Please check in with us upon arrival to obtain your walk packages.  It is always a zoo trying to take a team picture, but we hope that we will be able to grab a team picture at some point before the walk......maybe 9:45ish?

What to bring:

  • your donation forms/money if you have offline donations
  • also consider a light coat, sunglasses, bug spray, sun lotion, camera, & good shoes.
There are no washrooms on the walk route, so please go before heading out.  There are no snack or water stations on route.  Please help yourself to a free bottle of water by the Lodge before starting. 

The trail is a packed dirt path, which can accommodate strollers/wagons.  There is one set of stairs where volunteers help those who need to carry these down the stairs.
If you guys take any great pictures at the walk, we would love to see them!  Please feel free to email to us!

In case you are wondering about the blue bandanas that you will see at the walk this year...this is a means of identifying those with CF.  Carter will be wearing one.  Those with CF are not required to wear one, but this will help us in a small way to be more aware and be able to keep Carter at a distance from others with CF (It is strongly recommended that those with CF are not in close contact for infection control).
