National Walk to Support the Cause brings Western family together
Western team members enjoy the National Walk to Support the Cause.
The National Walk to Support the Cause has been held on May 27 as a fundraiser for our charitable arm, the Western Communities Foundation, for 17 years. We’re always proud to see our people and customers across Canada participate in their own 5km walk/run in the communities we serve.
Although our 18th annual walk was different, we know how important it is to be outside and stay connected during challenging times. Despite being physically apart, we came together as one when our people from our 180 branches across Canada were encouraged to walk near their homes with family members.
While we modified this year’s National Walk to Support the Cause for the wellbeing of our people and communities, Laurette LaPlante, director of the Western Communities Foundation, said.
“We felt for the health and safety of everyone in our communities, that this was the right thing to do to encourage people to get out and enjoy the fresh air.”
