The 8th annual Adoption FunWalk in support of the Adoption Council of Ontario (ACO) was bigger than ever this year. Thanks to so many, this event was such a success!

We had a wacky, wonderful time at Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. After following the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole and around Cabbagetown for the FunWalk the games kicked off. Every year the fantastic, award-winning volunteer Carol Deighton creates another world with the FunFair and costumes. DJ Colin from Feedback Event Services kept the party alive with some tunes while laughter and fun filled the air. We were so happy to see everyone returning dressed as their favourite party goers from the familiar adventures of Alice!

With donations still coming in, we are able to announce that the event has raised over $60,000 as of today. We will continue to work towards our annual goal of $100,000 by December 31, 2017. Your efforts of raising hard-earned funds will go towards making a difference for families formed through adoption in Ontario.

Prize Winners

We’re carefully counting every $30 raised by participants will be announcing the prize winner shortly!

Matching Gifts

An anonymous donor is so inspired that they have promised us a generous gift! But we need your help to get it! We need 30 people to commit to becoming a monthly donor (of at least $20 per month) to receive a $10,000 donation from our anonymous donor. Why 30 people? In honour of ACO's 30th anniversary.

Become a Monthly Donor

Become a monthly donor and you can ensure that that the ACO continues matching kids with families and supporting these families through their adoption journey. Share your favourite moments from FunWalk with friends and families to continue your fundraising!

Come (back) next year!

Planning has already begun for FunWalk 2018. Stay tuned for details, we would love to have you (back)  next year.

We are so grateful to have the support and the support of our volunteers, sponsors, donors, and registrants who share our vision of a province where every child and youth has a family to grow up and grow old in.
