Walking in order to help others
It’s walk time again.
On Saturday, Grans from Nelson and the West Kootenay will join, thousands of Canadian grandmothers and grandkids who will be walking, all across the country to raise funds for grandmothers in Africa as they carry the enormous burden of caring for their orphaned grandchildren.
The public is invited to walk together with the Nelson Grans to Grans to help “Turn the Tide” on HIV AIDS in Africa either by walking with the Grans or sponsoring them online. One hundred per cent of proceeds go to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign by the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

Registration is set to begin at 10 a.m.
