Over 900 community members of all ages came out with their families to support the annual BAPS Charities Walk Green 2018 in Toronto, Ontario on July 29, 2018 starting from the BAPS Swaminarayan Complex at 61 Claireville Drive, Toronto.
The BAPS Charities Walks in Canada support the lifesaving work of the William Osler Health System and raise funds for environmental initiatives organized by BAPS Charities. Across North America, 2018 marks the third year that the annual BAPS Charities walkathon will benefit The Nature Conservancy and their effort to conserve the lands and waters on earth to sustain life for upcoming generations. BAPS Charities will contribute $165,000, an equivalent of planting 130,000 trees, to The Nature Conservancy to support their initiative to plant a billion trees globally by 2025. Special Guests at the event included: Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport; Deepak Anand, MPP, Mississauga-Malton; Councillor Vincent Crisanti, Ward 1 Etobicoke North
