The super fun, family-friendly fundraiser celebrates and supports Canada’s aging population, their families and caregivers. One of the teams participating and walking with residents in the parade was the Shamrock Gumbooters 4-H Club. Among the club projects is the Adopt-a-Grandparent Project. The Shamrock Gumbooters feel very privileged to get to spend time with, support and interact with the residents from Glacier View Lodge.

“Walking and pushing wheelchairs for the residents from Glacier View lodge was a great opportunity for our club,” said club member Fiona Coco Kennedy, in a press release. “All the kids enjoyed being able to help raise money for our seniors and enjoyed refreshments and bagpipe players. There were many Comox Valley families with young children participating. We hope you join us in 2020 to support our aging community.”
