Runners, walkers, strollers and rollers come out for ErinoakKids 5K

April 28, 2014
More than 200 runners, walkers, rollers and strollers came together in the spring sunshine on April 27 at Lakeside Park in Mississauga for the second annual 5K walk for ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development.


“It was terrific to see so many members of the ErinoakKids family join us today,” said Bridget Fewtrell, President and CEO of ErinoakKids. “This event is a great way for people of all ages and abilities in our community to enjoy the outdoors while showing their support for a very special cause.”

  
 
The 5K supports the ErinoakKids $20-million In My Dreams capital campaign. The campaign is raising funds to support the ErinoakKids redevelopment project, which will enable ErinoakKids to consolidate its current patchwork of leased and retrofitted space into three new facilities built specifically for the care of children with disabilities and special needs. The new facilities, located in Mississauga, Oakville and Brampton, are scheduled to open in early 2017. In addition, the In My Dreams campaign will support vital programs and services at ErinoakKids that do not receive government funding.
 
The 2014 EOK 5K was presented by title and centre stage sponsor Manulife Bank and the Kid’s Zone and light lunch were sponsored by The Scott Benson Team. The event also featured live entertainment, a prize raffle and a Kids Zone with face painting, water and rice tables and a colouring station.

Did you know that by introducing your child to early life skills from ages five to seven (such as helping to make your child’s bed, tidy his or her room, unpack and pack his or her school backpack, and set the table and clear dishes at the end of a meal) is preparing him or her for the responsibility of expanded home and community-based life skills as a young adult?
