InspireHealth leads community in fundraising walk

Oak Bay organization offers stress management, nutrition and counselling for those facing cancer

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.

Learn more about InspireHealth at 250-595-7125 or inspirehealth.ca/rainwalk.
