Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History

May 27

On May 27, Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s Prince Edward Island Chapter will host the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History at the Elmira Railway Station to help raise funds for critical cystic fibrosis (CF) research and care. Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease among Canadian children and young adults. There is no cure. In the 1960s, most Canadian children with CF did not live long enough to attend kindergarten. Now, the median age of survival of Canadians with CF is among the highest in the world at 53.3 years. There is still no cure or control for cystic fibrosis and according to the most recent data of the patients who lost their battle to CF, half were under 39 years of age. The Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History will host thousands of participants in over 70 locations across the country. The walks take place every May during Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month, when Cystic Fibrosis Canada raises awareness about the disease and raises funds for vital CF research, care and advocacy initiatives. Sponsore a participant or join the walk on May 27 at Elmira Railway Station beginning at 12 pm. To register and/or make a donation, visit cysticfibrosis.ca/walk

Wright's Creek Interpretive Walk

June 2

The Hillsborough River Association and the Wright's Creek Watershed Environmental Committee invite the public to an interpretative trail-walking event on June 2. The hike will begin at 9 am at the East Royalty Parkman Soccer Complex parking lot at 62 Robertson Road in Charlottetown. Most of the 4.3 km route will be along City of Charlottetown trails except, for this event, there will be a tour of the privately owned, circa 1800, Bird Island/Belmont/Wright's/Andrew's watermill site. The mill site is steeped in history with a 22 foot high, 215 year old milldam, waterfalls, and many artifacts and photographs from the milling and ice cutting past. Free refreshments will be served at the mill site (please bring your own cup.) The walk will circumnavigate the salt marsh portion of Wright's Creek between the Hillsborough River and St. Peters Road. Volunteers will be on hand to point out birds and plants seen along the route and to discuss the area's history. Binoculars may be useful. The trail surface is a combination of clay, pavement and short grass and is easy walking with no steps or steep inclines. A one block long section of the walk will be along Cambridge Drive on the way back to the Parkman Soccer Complex. Raindate is June 9.
