What Are We Fundraising For?

This year, we are directing all fundraising towards welcoming and supporting people to our day programs. This remains a priority for families in Richmond Hill and York Region who are looking to find meaningful places of activity for their son or daughter. The Walk WITH Hope is a fundraiser and friend-building event where core members (people with disabilities) , assistants, friends, family, and hundreds of high school and middle school students from across York Region get together for a fun-filled morning. Sponsors like you help L’Arche Daybreak continue to offer a high quality of support and day activities to the dozens of people with developmental disabilities living in our homes or working in our programs.
