There is no cure for hydrocephalus, but together we can walk to raise awareness and funds to support Hydrocephalus Canada.
After being diagnosed with hydrocephalus in 1994 at the age of 28, my wife and I made it our mission to create a supportive community here in Sault Ste. Marie for people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
“I believe that hydrocephalus was given to me for a reason, and we felt that it was our “calling” to make the most of it.”
The walk is a community event held down by Clergue Park by the waterfront. It is a place to come and meet with other people who share similar experiences, and bring them together for mutual support, encouragement, comfort, information and positive feedback.
“Whenever the need arises, there is always someone here to lean on and to talk to so they do NOT have to face it alone. Our informal network of group support is available all year, but this one day brings us all together and keeps us connected. It gives us all a sense of belonging.”
Troy’s Trail annual event brings people together in Sault Ste. Marie to raise awareness and funds for Hydrocephalus Canada. This inspiring community event has raised more than $15,000 to support the programs and services provided by Hydrocephalus Canada to thousands of people across the country.
“Community” is the strength of each and every Troy’s Trail, no matter how large or how small it may be. It’s the dedication and passion of the people involved that makes each year a success.
