Our dedicated, energetic families and staff are busy year-round planning events that play a major role in the ongoing funding of our children’s therapy programs.

We welcome your help in ensuring their success. Together we’ll make a difference for kids with autism!

On Sunday October 22, 2017, our team will participate in the half and full marathon, and the 5-kilometre run/walk at the STWM, our 14th year at the Scotiabank Charity Challenge










It’s that time of year!

Our families and staff here at Giant Steps are gearing up for our largest annual fundraising event, the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sunday October 22nd.

Join us now, and invite your friends, families and colleagues to register too!
It’s a fun experience to share, and the bigger our team, the easier it will be to reach our goal.

You’ll be helping raise the funds that will enable kids with autism to receive hands-on speech, occupational and behaviour therapy programs this year.

REGISTER NOW to walk or run and fundraise
DONATE NOW & help us cross the finish line

In 2015, we passed an amazing benchmark —  over ONE MILLION DOLLARS raised since we began participating in this event in 2004.

We are now in great company with Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, Team in Training and Fountain of Love & Life, all of us members of STWM’s $1 Million Fundraising Club!

Our heartfelt thanks to Scotiabank and Canada Running Series for enabling charities like ours to participate in a world-class event AND fulfill our mission! Scotiabank generously pays for the online transaction fees, enabling 100% of donations to come directly to Giant Steps.
