Crowds came out for the second annual InspireHealth Rain Walk in Oak Bay Sunday (March 4).
InspireHealth is a not-for-profit organization that supports people through and beyond their cancer diagnosis. Their services include exercise therapy, stress management, nutrition and counselling services; all of which are offered free of charge.
While InspireHealth is partially funded by the Ministry of Health, they fundraise the remainder of their budget, to a tune of $1 million annually. The Rain Walk raised nearly $25,000 this year.
Almost 30,000 people in B.C. will get diagnosed with cancer this year, according to BC Cancer Agency – a number that highlights the ongoing importance of funding resources that help people cope with diagnosis and treatment.
