Stride to Turn the Tide  


The Halton-Peel Team: Oomama and Bronte Grandmothers for Africa



Virtual Stride Walk
March 1 - June 30, 2022

     Our Virtual Stride has launched and we now have 25 registered striders.On March 1st, we began striding, hiking, biking, doing yoga, and even house cleaning, to record our steps.

In spite of some injuries, sickness and weather challenges. By May 1, the team managed to ‘Clock’ a massive 7,750 KMs.  We are well on our way to Tanzania and beyond!


We have also managed to raise over $8,000 already…more than halfway to our 2022 goal of $15,000.  Keep up the good work and let's see if we can beat our Fundraising goal!

Stride to Turn the Tide is a fundraising initiative created in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation's Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. They organize virtual walks and activities of all sorts that can be done safely from home, or where possible, through social distancing in their communities.


We invite family, friends, and supporters of all ages to participate in solidarity with the grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa who walk with purpose every day as they turn the tide of HIV and AIDS.


The Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) delivers funds directly to grassroots and community-based organizations in sub-Saharan Africa, who are at the forefront of the response to HIV and AIDS.
