At IDRF we believe each and every human being deserves to live a dignified life. We believe that every individual can make a contribution to ensure that all people live with dignity. The Walk will take place in Toronto, Canada. The walk will be 5km in length and will allow for teams & for all people without any form of discrimination to participate in a pledged march either as an individual or as a team (minimum 4 people) to walk for the cause that touches their heart.

The walk will be an opportunity to raise awareness about the work of IDRF both locally across Canada as well as globally throughout 25+ projects around the world. The events are also an opportunity to raise funds to further the work that IDRF is are doing in these countries as well as to start new projects that support the development and empowerment of women, children, men, orphans and families so that no only do they meet their basic needs as human beings, but that they have the skills and tools required to live a life of prosperity.
