On September 20th, 2015, people from across Canada participated in the Walk Across Canada to raise awareness for eating disorders. The walk is in commemoration of a young woman named Renata whose eating disorder claimed her life in 2005.
People gathered to walk in Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario, New York, and British Columbia. Members of the Riverwalk community participated and showed their support by walking in King City, Orangeville, Stouffville, Toronto, New York, and Whistler BC.

June 2015: 100 in 1 Day
To celebrate 100 in 1 Day, Riverwalk Wellness Centres hosted a coffee-house style open-mic (no-mic) event in Aurora, where several individuals from the community came together to share their music and poetry. A giant board full of positive messages and affirmations was created. This board will be kept on display in Riverwalk’s art gallery and will be an ongoing initiative where individuals can contribute positive messages at any time as they feel inspired.
