Thank-You! We are so grateful to have had over 100 people brave the cold and come out to this year's ShamWalk. To have so many staff, volunteers, families and supporters come out is a testament to the amazing community that we have at Geneva Centre.

I’m thrilled to announce that once again we were the largest charity team at the race. We truly outdid ourselves this year raising over $24,000. Congratulations to all of our fundraisers and thank you to everyone who donated.
