Calgary's 22nd Annual Wellness Walk 2019

National Addictons Awareness Week (NAAW) 2019

On November 18, 2019, hundreds of Calgarians joined an estimated 600,000 Canadians to mark National Addictions Awareness Week, walking the downtown streets to promote positive action toward the prevention of substance and gambling dependencies. The Wellness Walk Committee, comprised of over 20 community agencies and organizations, expects over 200 men, women and children to gather at Millennium Park, as they prepare to march the streets of downtown Calgary to raise awareness, share hope and promote the importance of striving to maintain community consciousness for healthy living and an addiction free lifestyle. The Walk will finish at the Kerby Centre and be followed by lunch, speakers and entertainment.

Start point: Olympic Plaza

End point: The Kerby Centre – 1133 – 7th Avenue SW

Schedule of Events: Opening Ceremonies at 11:15 AM – Olympic Plaza (opening blessing and honour song, reading of Proclamation). Lunch and entertainment following the walk, a free hot lunch will be served at The Kerby Centre (live music, guest speaker, Drum Group Round Dance).
