2012 Kidney Walk in Victoria BC

by hwilde on July 4, 2012

Join the crowd at the 2012 Victoria Kidney Walk on August 12th at Clover Point in Victoria BC.  The Kidney Foundation of Canada (BC Branch) is celebrating the 5th annual Give the Gift of Life Kidney Walk and hopes to see you and all your friends there to support the cause.

The Victoria Kidney Walk is one of many events taking place in communities across Canada. These walks are the Kidney Foundation of Canada’s most important fundraising and awareness campaign, supporting the well-being of kidney patients and their families, the battle against kidney disease, and the need for more organ donors.

The Kidney Foundation hopes to draw attention to the fact that, while 85% of Canadians are in favour of organ donation, only 18% have registered to become donors.  This great gap between “will do” and “did do” is endangering the 2,800 people I BC alone who are undergoing dialysis while they await a suitable donor.

You may enter as an individual or cobble together a team to enter this fun event, while raising some much needed funds to help implement patient support and research programs in your region.  There is no charge for registration or minimum amount that needs to be raised.

The details:

Location:           Clover Point (Dallas Road)

Date:            Sunday August 12th, 2012

Time:             9:00 am – registration     10:00 AM -walk starts.

Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
