Hydrocephalus (water on the brain) is a chronic condition that impacts the brain. It can affect anyone from unborn babies to older adults, and the condition can lead to challenges with movement, memory and learning as well as headaches, seizure and incontinence. Left untreated, hydrocephalus can be fatal.
Troy and Annette Chandler are committed to reaching out and making a positive difference in the lives of individuals and their families whose lives have been impacted with the daily challenges brought on by these serious disabling conditions.
Troy’s Trail supports individuals and their families living with hydrocephalus and spina bifida. The annual walk, created in 2012, brings people together in Sault Ste. Marie to celebrate and honour loved ones who are living with, or who have passed away from these neurological conditions.
June is the month to highlight the importance of the cause through awareness and fundraising activities.
It is through public awareness, media relations, and social media that promotes a community that is supportive and appreciates the challenges faced by people living with these lifelong neurological conditions.
Community support is welcomed to help raise much needed funds and awareness. Hydrocephalus Canada relies on fundraising efforts and generous donors to continue essential programs, services, and research that help improve the quality of life for people living with these conditions and their families in our communities.
In light of the evolving situation with COVID-19 and the guidelines set out by the provincial government, Troy's Trail will likely be going virtual again this year. While we may not physically be able to get together for this year’s celebration, we can still come together virtually to make this year a memorable one!
Troy and Annette would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for their continued support over the years.
You can still make a difference, to help fund event costs, and direct more money toward providing community awareness, education, and resources.
