About us.

This Year’s Virtual Event

We would like to invite persons of all ages to participate especially those over 60 years old to participate and walk, push a wheelchair or be pushed if, wheelchair bound. This year due to the COVID-19 pandemic to maintain safety and the recommendations for social distancing the Pushathon will be a virtual event. Persons can register on the event website and submit their race time, photos and videos in the categories of walking, running, pushing or being pushed.

This year is the 10th Annual Geriatric Push/Walkathon and it will be held on Saturday June 12th 2021 at 6:30 am.

Sandilands’s Rehab Participants

Our Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre participants will walk or be pushed around the Drella’s Dream Circle on the hospital grounds 6:30 am. Wheelchair participants and pushers will have to complete a one (1) mile distance and record their times in order to be eligible for prize consideration.  One week following the Push/Walkathon prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each race category will be announced on the website.
