2022 Meta Foundation Walk and Run

July 16 2022
The James De Zen Centre of Abilities

We are thrilled to announce we will be hosting a hybrid version of our Meta Foundation's 21st Annual Family Walk, Run and Fondo. The event will kick off on June 26th and we will continue to offer our peer to peer fundraising campaign that will allow all supporters to make a goal, participate on their own time, raise funds and win swag!

We welcome everyone to register as a participant or team and fundraise to support Meta! On Saturday July 16th we will wrap up the event at The James De Zen Centre of Abilities and offer an in-person get together at Veneto Centre where all participants can pick up their swag, grab some treats and see our beautiful Veneto Centre neighbourhood! Take a walk with friends, go for a rollerblade or cycle with your team.

We look forward to welcoming you back stronger than ever and seeing you all in 2023 with our full capacity annual in-person event!
