Nelson Grans for Grans got a wave of support from the tramway conductor this morning as they began their fundraiser walk from Lakeside Park.

Nelson Grans to Grans walk from Lakeside to Cottonwood Park

Grandmothers and grandchildren are walking to raise funds for grandmothers in Africa.

The Nelson Grans for Grans are walking from Lakeside Park to the Cottonwood market this morning as part of national fundraiser. Grandmothers and grandchildren are walking, all across Canada, to raise funds for grandmothers in Africa as they carry the enormous burden of caring for their orphaned grandchildren.

The Nelson Grans for Grans are fundraising to help “Turn the Tide” on HIV AIDS in Africa. All of the proceeds go to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign by the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

The Nelson Grans to Grans was organized in Nelson in 2006 and is one of 240 groups across Canada.
