It’s time to Step Up for Wayside!
On Saturday, October 22, join Wayside’s community of clients, staff, and friends at the FirstOntario Centre for their 4th annual family-friendly, fun-filled 5KM walk/run and fundraiser to continue helping men recover from addiction.
Doors open for registration at 9 a.m., followed by the Welcome Ceremony and walk/run at 10 a.m.
This event aims to raise awareness and funds which will go directly towards supporting vital programs and services for those in recovery as well as increasing access to lifesaving addiction treatment that helps change the life trajectory of fathers, brothers, sons, neighbours, and friends.
Over this past year, Wayside has served over 420 men, completed 306 individual assessments and 16,008 face-to-face engagements. Wayside has also provided 7,522 treatment groups and served 27,375 meals. Their efforts have contributed to an 87% reduction in emergency room visits.
Your participation can help Wayside grow and continue their momentum in providing addiction services support for the men of Ontario.
