I’m writing to invite you to join the team, Keira’s Krusaders, in support of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. We’d love to have you join the national movement to end brain tumours and to honour the memory of a very special girl, Keira Bond.
This year the Brain Tumour Walk is not organizing an event like last year, so this will just be our Keira Krusader Crew walking to honour and remember the remarkable Keira for a good cause. We will be walking together along Sturgeon Creek, a place Keira enjoyed. We will meet at Grant’s Old Mill at 10:00am on Saturday, June 15th and walk along the path.

Join Our Team!
Please share in this experience by joining our team and by helping to raise money for a worthy cause! Just click on this link:  Join Keira’s Krusaders .
If you are not interested in joining the team to walk but would like to learn more about Keira or make a donation, click on the link above as well.
