2019 Regina and District Stoma Stroll
Although it was a cool week heading into the Stoma Stroll we had a great day for the Regina and District Annual Stoma Stroll on October 5th. We were about 50 people strong, who came out to walk or visit. Most people actually walked the course, which was set up with different distances, from a short stroll to a 4 km walk. All of our stoma nurses were there to support the event as well as family and friends of people who live with an ostomy. And it was great to have our sponsor Tim Artemenko and Yvonne Slobodian (Jolly’s) join us and as well Ruth and Walter Pradzynski from Medical1.
We raised over $2300 this year with a total of 47 donors. To all those who supported the event by attending or volunteering and/or donating to the cause, it’s appreciated. The monies we raised are directed to initiatives like the annual Youth Ostomy Camp, promotion of benefits like the Disability Tax Credit, advocating for better provincial health coverage, educational support for nurses, and other national and local activities. Thank you.
