As cooler weather approaches, so does the 5th Annual Walk It Off Scarf Auction Fundraiser – November 22-30, 2014! To ease into the season changes, think about adding a handmade goodie to your wardrobe to keep you or a loved one warm through the fall and winter. It’s also a great gift idea for the Holiday Season!

All of the proceeds from the auction go directly towards purchasing new equipment for Walk It Off.

Each year Walk It Off receives graciously donated Handmade seasonal items to include in the Annual Scarf Auction. The items up for bid range from scarves, hats to other seasonal items and jewelry in all colours, sizes and patterns!

If you would like to see items of the past to get a feel for what’s to come, go to the Facebook group Walk It Off Scarf Auction. To view the Albums, click here.

walk it off recovery fund raisers3. Beta Sigma Phi Gift Wrap Fundraiser

Newmarket Beta Sigma Phi sisters have raised monies for almost 30 years for various area charities by wrapping gifts at Upper Canada Mall during the holiday season. To date, they have raised and donated more than $350,000. (Snap’d)”  Walk It Off has been chosen as one of their recipients this year!

Their project runs from December 1 to December 24th. They need 1,100 hours of volunteer time to make this venture a success! They can’t do it without volunteers!

They welcome volunteers to sign up for a shift (or two 🙂 ). It’s a lot of fun and together they are helping to build a stronger community. Please contact us here at WIO if you are interested in being part of this Fundraiser.

As always, we welcome your feedback! You can connect with us via email or telephone, or leave a comment right here on the site. Don’t forget to leave a link back to your own blog too if you have one.

Until next time,
