Rings of Hope
Plan to join us on Saturday July 22 , 2023.
Durham Children’s Aid Foundation (DCAF) presented the second annual Rings of Hope event on July 23rd, 2022. Celebrating and raising funds for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion programs for children and youth. DCAF invited families from the community to come out and enjoy an Olympic themed – FREE Fun Filled outing! DCAF is committed to support the ongoing development of an inclusive community for all.
Entertainment included a fabulous Magician; free Caricature Drawings, fabulous swag and much more. There was something for everyone. Adults and children alike enjoyed the variety of inter-active activities.
Sponsors included: Durham Children’s Aid Society, Field Hockey Ontario, Basketball Ontario, Rugby Ontario, Ontario Tech Ridgebacks, Sport Durham, Durham Regional Police Services, Elexicon, Bell, Planet Fitness, Durham Region, Ontario Power Generation and Rotary Club of Ajax.
The proceeds raised support Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs for children and youth. Collectively 500 children and youth are impacted from these essential programs; including Youth Pride and Black History Month events, support Mental Health requests for marginalized communities and Bursary needs.
Looking forward to Rings of Hope in 2023
In 2023, DCAF plans to continue enhancing event experience for families by inviting more grassroot organizations in the community to participate, invite more celebrity guests such as Olympic and Paralympic athletes and present musical performances.
