Fundraising Events

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.
