Registration for the 2024 Walk for Immunodeficiency is now open!

Walk for Immunodeficiency

This year, we’re uniting across Canada to help raise public awareness about what it is like to live with an immunodeficiency, and to bring accessibility to the forefront.

Uniting Around Immunodeficiency

This year, we’re uniting across Canada to help raise public awareness about what it is like to live with an immunodeficiency.

Our 2024 campaign focus is about access to care for patients – to early diagnosis, treatment options, financial assistance, emotional and social support, all of which differs from province to province. Through your fundraising efforts, we also aim to raise $35,000 through walks this year for our member programs and services. 

Whether you’re walking in one of our five organised walks happening at one of our Education and Awareness Days in Vancouver, Banff, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Halifax, joining a local walk, or walking on your own we are here to support you with your awareness and fundraising efforts!
