"We believe our Dad, Dennis Chase, had a personality so unique that anyone who had the privilege of knowing him, aspires to be the type of person he was at home, in the community, and at work." - The Chase Family
This annual walkathon has been created to support the incredible work of the Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA), in honor of a man who left the world a better place by nurturing personal relationships and working in an industry he took great pride in.
Dennis Chase was a man that had his priorities straight; he valued family above everything else and managed to face every situation with a gleam in his eye and a huge grin on his face.
It is important to the Chase Family that this annual walk creates a legacy of optimism and conservation ensuring that this corner of the world continues to be a bit brighter and greener than it was yesterday.
All proceeds from this event will support the efforts of the
Essex Region Conservation Foundation - Place for Life
ERCA is a family and Dennis was, and still is a big part of that amazing family.
In January 2013, two months after Dennis passed away, ERCA presented the first Dennis B. Chase Staff Award. It was noted at the 2013 AGM, that Dennis was one of the most beloved employees to ever work at ERCA and that during his long-time career, he had planted over a million trees and made countless contributions to the region`s conservation areas.
