Whether you’re a participant or a volunteer, our signature events are a fun way to support our work in the city.

Fun ways to build a better community

Our annual events are a great way to come together with, and for, community. Your participation powers our network of community agencies, ensuring people across the GTA can get much-needed support, close to home. Invite friends, co-workers and neighbours to join you and help us strengthen the places where we live, work and raise our families.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Community health and well-being remain our top priorities during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are working on adapting our annual events to ensure you can participate while staying safe. Please keep an eye on this space for further updates.
