Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada and Quesada Burritos & Tacos Announce National “Walk This Way Day”


TORONTO — Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada has teamed up with Canadian-owned and operated restaurant chain Quesada Burritos & Tacos to raise funds for a unique program promoting physical activity and learning by encouraging young people to explore their community on foot.

A national fundraising event, Walk This Way Day will take place across Canada on Oct. 18 at more than 60 Quesada locations, with $1 from every burrito sold going to support the national expansion of Walk this Way.

“We are excited to bring this active-living program to clubs across the country,” says Owen Charters, president & CEO, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. “Thanks to the support of Quesada, we will now be able to ensure that even more young people get to know their cities while learning the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.”

In addition to purchasing a burrito, customers will also have the opportunity to make additional donations.

“We’re thrilled and honoured to support Boys and Girls Clubs and we feel Quesada customers will be equally as enthusiastic about supporting healthy, happy lifestyles among Canadian youth,” says Steve Gill, founder and CEO, Quesada Burritos & Tacos.
