The Hazel McCallion Walk for Health will support the redevelopment and expansion of the Mississauga Hospital. What was a small community hospital in 1958 has since grown into a major centre for regional programs like cardiac care, stroke and more, supporting the health of our citizens. Over that time hospital standards have evolved and the pandemic made it abundantly clear we must redevelop. By joining the walk, not only will you be celebrating health care workers in our community but you will also help raise money to support THP. Money raised from the event will help build the largest hospital in Canada, the future home of The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital.
When the new hospital is built it will replace the existing 62–year old facility and is a critical part of THP's plan to build a new kind of health care that serves a growing and diverse community. The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital will offer over 950 beds, more surgical capacity and a much larger emergency department.

Now that you’ve registered, take some time to familiarize yourself with all the great things you can do through your personal fundraising dashboard. The page will allow you to set your fundraising goal, track your progress and ask for donations.
You can either use the template we’ve provided or have fun and add a photo and your reason for joining The Hazel McCallion Walk for Health. Participants who customize their pages often find that they are more successful at fundraising and reaching their goals.
Kick-start fundraising by donating to yourself. This is a great way to show your support and it helps suggest a donation amount to others who will be visiting your page. Alternatively, if you’d rather not ask anyone to sponsor you, feel free to donate the full fundraising minimum.
Use one of our templates in the participation centre or grab your personal link to send emails from your personal email. Ask for support and tell your colleagues, friends and family why you’re walking. This will help you reach your fundraising goal. Consider adding a suggested donation amount of $25, $50, $75 or donate what you can to give people an idea of how much to donate.
Share your personal donation page on your favourite social media channels, and consider texting your friends to ask them to sponsor you (or even join you at the walk)!
Everyone is busy and they may not remember receiving a message from you. It’s ok to ask again. Consider sending a second message via email, text or on social media to remind people to sponsor you.
We’ve tried to keep things simple for you and added a template for that, but thank you messages are more meaningful when they are personalized, so feel free to customize your message. This is also a good time to remind your sponsors that they should have received automatic tax receipts.
Getting outside to celebrate health care workers with your friends, family and colleagues is a great way to give back and get active but raising the funds needed to help us build Canada’s largest hospital is what will make you feel good and get you some great prizes and rewards.
