On Sunday October 1st, from 9:30 am -1 pm, Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region is hosting our largest fundraiser of the year. Raise funds, walk, run or wheel in support of inclusion and belonging for people with disabilities and their families. Guest host – KW’s own champion Syd the Jewel Vanderpool!

Victoria Park Pavilion
(80 Schneider Ave., Kitchener, ON N2G 1K9)

This event brings our incredible community together, those with a personal connection to Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region, and those who believe in the work that we do. It is an incredible day that raises significant funds for our Community Development team; our trailblazing team that connects families with the supports that they need. They create public awareness for disability, host educational and community building events, and nurture lasting relationships that build a strong and inclusive Waterloo Region.

The financial impact of your support will be felt immediately, as EAFWR’ s Community Development team operates solely on fundraised dollars.
