The first annual Walk Her Way 5K is a virtual run/walk fundraiser with a goal to raise $50,000 in support of Compassion House Foundation.
Register as a team or an individual, fundraise in advance, then complete a 5 km walk or run of your choice between May 13-16, 2021. Anyone, anywhere at any fitness level is welcome and encouraged to participate.
Your support helps women battling cancer find comfort, connection, and community during a time when they need it most.

The cancer journey can be a lonely and difficult time. Imagine leaving your community, your home, and your loved ones to travel to Edmonton for cancer treatment. The financial impact is daunting, the emotional journey even more so.
Walk Her Way 5K raises critical funding for Compassion House Foundation, helping to ease the distress of the cancer journey for women through Sorrentino’s Compassion House, post-treatment programs, financial support, and reliable operations. Proceeds from the event will be used towards the greatest area of need at the time.
Join us as we step into her shoes and Walk Her Way in a small journey to help ease the distress of the cancer journey for women.
There’s no registration fee; instead, we ask that each participant fundraises a minimum of $100. If you do so by April 27, you’ll receive a commemorative event item and SWAG box.
Teams fundraising alongside, or in memory of, a specific woman affected by cancer are highly encouraged. There’s no limit to the amount of people who can be on a team.

Embrace IT – Health + Fitness
My journey began in 2008, when I started my degree in Physical Education at Grande Prairie Regional College, later graduating at the University of Alberta. In 2013, I became a CSEP Certified Personal Trainer. Health and fitness have become my passion, and I believe in the necessity for an active lifestyle, encompassing a balance of all the compulsory components of fitness.
In 2018, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, I have really taken a vast interest in the importance of physical activity and the effects it has on cancer patients. I have been recently taking courses to better my knowledge in this area, and I cannot wait to offer some new programs in our community for those diagnosed with cancer. I have come a long way in my journey, and I am grateful to be able to extend my passion to others!
I have lived most of my life in Jasper. I am a former Parks Canada Guide and a former Registered Nurse. I started my company Walks & Talks Jasper when Parks stopped offering guided hikes. I enjoy sharing my passion and knowledge of Jasper National Park. As a Professional Level Guide, guests go away with a greater understanding and appreciation of our National Park. I also own a ski shop in Jasper called Edge Control, and this is where I often meet my guests who join me on fun, informative guided hikes.
I am a cancer survivor. I had a lumpectomy in December of 2008. I believe in Compassion House Foundation because I understand how important it is for many women to have a supportive place to stay while undergoing cancer treatment.
Ford Fitness Co.
I’m a registered nurse and personal trainer. My current focus is within Public Health Nursing and health promotion, which pairs well with my long-time passion for health and fitness. I’ve spent over 12 years learning, practicing, and loving many styles of exercise, physical activity, and sports, along with their unique benefits. I believe the key to living a healthy lifestyle incorporates all aspects of health, along with finding ways to move that you love. I believe in the basics: focusing on balanced nutrition, habit development, and long-term goal mindset. So much of the fitness industry focuses on aesthetics and promises of short-term, unrealistic results.
My goal is to challenge others to think long-term―to think beyond aesthetics to the well-known benefits of taking care of ALL aspects of your health. My goal is to help others reach their goals using a personalized lifestyle health approach… and to enjoy the process!
I’ve been promoting the healthy life for over a decade as a passionate fitness instructor, online nutrition and mindset success coach, and soon-to-be personal trainer. My mission is to empower others to live life with passion and purpose by providing solutions for nutrition, weight loss, and athletic performance to transform health, self worth, and career potential of my clients. I am no stranger to fundraising. I was heavily involved with Relay for Life for many years as event entertainment, participant, and member of top fundraising teams. I absolutely love that these fundraising events create a community before, during, and after cancer treatment, so I’m extremely excited to be a Fitness Champion for this event.
