Small Business Sponsorship

Do you or someone you know own a small business? There are many opportunities to support FunWalk and raise your profile in a local community event.


Hard facts you need to know to want to make a difference…

More children become available for adoption each year than are adopted in Ontario.

Children often wait five years or more to be adopted, move three or more times in foster care and often are separated from siblings.

Foster care ends at 18.  Over 1000 young people a year turn 18 and “age out” of the child welfare system with no family to call their own.  Their outcomes can be poor with a much higher chance of:

  • Not being able to finish high school or go on to post secondary education;
  • Facing unemployment;
  • Facing incarceration;
  • Becoming homeless;
  • Experiencing exacerbated mental illness;
  • Having their kids enter the child welfare system.

With your support, we can improve the outcomes for Ontario’s youth.
