A Walk Wedding

This June, Danisha Bhaloo and Adil Shivji, long-time supporters of World Partnership Walk, will say “I do”. Knowing their wedding falls on Walk weekend, Adil and Danisha decided to commemorate their special day by engaging their guests in the campaign.

 

 

“Giving back has been an important part of both of our lives for as long as we can remember, and as soon as we got engaged we knew that it would be part of our wedding weekend (and the rest of our lives),” says Danisha.

 

As team captains, the couple intends to recruit their wedding guests from Edmonton, Calgary, and other Canadian cities as team members. They’re excited to kick start their team’s fundraising efforts with a self-donation to commemorate their wedding.

 

 

“I have the privilege to make sure children in Edmonton have what they need to succeed every day in my job (at Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters),” says Danisha. “The Walk gives us an opportunity to help children living in Africa and Asia.”
