In Our Community

On June 2, 2019, join volunteers and members of NLCU CFC as they attend the 16th Annual NLCU CFC Walk-a-thon. Volunteers will be walking to support of the Special Olympics Newfoundland and Labrador. Special Olympics is a province-wide non-profit organization that serves individuals.  They’re dedicated to enriching the lives of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, with an intellectual disability, through sport.  Their values of Empowerment, Excellence, Respect, Diversity and Inclusion are in keeping with NLCU's own values and philosophy.

Funds raised by this year's Walk-A-Thon will help support Special Olympics Newfoundland and Labrador with the preparation to send a team of 70 athletes, from all areas of our province, to the 2020 Special Olympics Canada National Winter Games in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The cost to do this is $120,000 and funds will be raised by Special Olympics NL. In the coming months leading up the 2020 National Games, the athletes will train at least 3 times a week and will attend 2 training camps in preparation for their competition. This gives athletes the opportunity to reach their full athletic and social potential, creating a culture of acceptance and inclusion.
