FunWalk Thank You


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The 7th annual Adoption FunWalk in support of the Adoption Council of Ontario (ACO) was bigger than ever this year. Thanks to our fundraisers, sponsors, donors, and volunteer this event was such a success.

We had more registrants than ever before! For the 6th year in a row, our presenting sponsor Solar Power Network brought the sunshine in time for the event! After the walk, the fun ramped up with the superhero FunFair, full of crazy games and super prizes, all designed and produced by the amazing, award winning volunteer, Carol Deighton. Riverdale Park was alive with music played by our awesome DJ Collin from Feedback Event Services. Munching on cotton candy and popcorn, we had visits from Superheroes from near and far, including Batman with his Batmobile!  

With donations still coming in, we are able to announce that the event has raised over $70,000 as of today.  We will continue to work towards our annual goal of $100,000 by December 31, 2016. 


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! We will keep you updated on how we’re doing as we come closer to the end of the year. 

Planning has already begun for FunWalk 2017.  Stay tuned for details! We would love to have you out next year!

We are so grateful to have the support of our everyday heroes and for everyone—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.

If you have any feedback about the event, please feel free to contact us by email at or by phone at 1-877-ADOPT 20.
