Events

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!

 

Thank you shoppers!

During the month of April, Stella & Dot Stylist Mariela McComb donated her commissions from the sale of their Unity Wishing Bracelets to Giant Steps. 

We were excited to team up with Mariela to promote Autism Awareness!

Thanks to everyone for their support!

Colours of the Spectrum

As part of Kids Fest, a visiting artist program, Tangled Art + Disability displayed artwork made by our students in the creative art workshops artist Carrie Perreault ran at Giant Steps this year.

Their wonderful creations were an awesome kick-off to World Autism Month!

Our heartfelt thanks go out to Kids Fest and Carrie for enriching our kids’ programming and for her generous donations of art supplies.

Thank you shoppers!

Organized and run by our dedicated parent group, our 3rd Annual Rummage Sale for Kids with Autism took place on Saturday April 28, 2018 at Giant Steps.

We thank everyone in the community who came out for the great bargains and supported our therapy programs here at Giant Steps.

See you next year!

 

We did it! Over $108,000 raised for kids with autism!
 

What a team! What a result!

160 strong, our team of families, friends and staff were out on Sunday October 22, 2017, participating in our largest annual fundraising event, the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.

Thank you to all our runners, walkers and donors for your amazing support. Together, we raised over $102,000 for kids with autism AND won a $6000 prize from Scotiabank for the largest fundraising team!

Every dollar will be used to provide hands-on speech, occupational and behaviour therapy programs this year.
