Sole Support - Vancouver Volunteers


This year the Vancouver Support walk will be live and in person.  Our routes will include a walk around Esther Short Park and along the riverfront!  

Expect a bigger and better community area with entertainment, vendors, and activities.

The success of our annual Sole Support fundraising and awareness walk rests on our supporters and volunteers!  

We hope you will join us by volunteering the day of the walk.
