Join Dale Bayliss (Paramedic, Registered Nurse and author) as he continues his personal journey to support first responders with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, compassion fatigue and other mental health challenges. This 24-hour walk is an opportunity to share stories, meet peers, and offer real support to those who are ‘fighting the fight’.
Partial distance participation is the standard, however, if you are up for the challenge, join the mighty few who take on the entire 24 hour 90+ km walk! Funds raised support the Alberta HELP Fund a province wide crisis relief fund for paramedics and their families during times of tragedy.
June 2nd, 1800 hrs – June 3rd, 1800 hrs. Participants can start at any checkpoint along the route.
Starting line at Hastings Lake Gardens.
51056 Range Road 204 Sherwood Park, AB T8G 1E5 5:30 PM Sharp!
Participants can start at any checkpoint throughout the 24hr walk.
“This cause is personal; we all know someone affected by Post Traumatic Stress, Compassion Fatigue, and or mental health issues.
There were 56 first responder suicides last year. 25% of paramedics suffer with PTSD, many of those suffer in silence.
We will walk to support each other and let others know that PTSD is real.
We will be united.
No one is alone; we will help each other.
The funds from this walk support Paramedics and their families, but Emergency Services – Fire, Police, and EMS – work as a team.
We are in this together
