THE

A HISTORY


In 1978, Tahsis Mayor Bill Lore issued a challenge to Gold River Mayor Vic Welsh, "I will walk to Gold River if you (Vic) will walk to Tahsis." The challenge was taken seriously, the walk happened and a tradition started.

This first walk raised more than $5,000 towards their community centre. Since then, the "Great Walk," has gained the reputation of being North America's toughest walkathon. Each year there are more participants, raising more money for more charities.
