If you live in Mississauga or the west end of the GTA, it’s likely you or a loved one has visited Trillium Health Partners (THP) for expert, compassionate care. THP cares for a population of 2.2 million people in the West GTA, with the most inpatients and most births per year in Ontario, and some of the largest volumes for emergency care and surgery.
On Sunday, June 5, 2022, Trillium Health Partners Foundation will celebrate our health care workers by hosting the first in-person event since the beginning of the pandemic “The Hazel McCallion Walk for Health“. The walk will be led by former Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion and will serve as a great opportunity for the community to come together and raise funds that will support the building of Canada’s largest hospital, the future home of The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital. Once complete, the new hospital will offer over 950 beds, more surgical capacity and a much larger emergency department. This new build is a crucial part of THP’s plan to build a new kind of health care that serves our growing and diverse community, and your participation in the walk will be a huge support.
The Hazel McCallion Walk for Health will take place at the Port Credit Memorial Park and participants will choose between 2 km and 5 km distances, Registration is free but you would be expected to make a minimum fundraising pledge. After letting Hazel McCallion lead the walk along the waterfront, the event will wrap up with a family-friendly festival. Fun activities are planned for the festival including a bouncy castle, colouring contest, face painting, food, music and more!
Best of all, feel good knowing that the money you helped raise is taking steps toward building a healthier community.
