At midnight on Sunday October 1st, 2017 Jim Turner began a walk across the Niagara Region in support of Niagara Children’s Centre. Jim walked 78.4km over the course of 16 hours taking 100,079 steps along his journey from Sherkston to Niagara-on-the-Lake and raised an impressive $20,652 for children, right here in Niagara.

"It was an honor and a privilege for me to take many, many steps toward helping kids get welcomed into the Niagara Children's Centre." – Jim Turner

Jim first became acquainted with Niagara Children’s Centre through family friend Joshua Gautier (14), who utilizes the resources and programs available at the Centre. Joshua has been receiving therapy and accessing programs at Niagara Children’s Centre for the past seven years, since he was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy at six years of age.

“Jim’s passion and drive to raise funds and promote the good work that is taking place each day at Niagara Children’s Centre is truly remarkable. We are so fortunate that Jim took on this incredible journey.” – Oksana Fisher, CEO Niagara Children’s Centre
