Spring Paper Egg #unstoppABLE Campaign

Each Spring, Canadians can show their support for Easter Seals by purchasing Easter Seals Paper Eggs at the cashier or customer service desk at participating stores and retail locations across Canada. Donations raised during this eggs-citing campaign help funds Easter Seals programs and services in support of Canadians living with disabilities across the country. 

DROP ZONE

Look up, look way up! The Drop Zone is a series of knee-shaking, heart-racing, adrenaline-pumping events that is held in multiple cities across Canada each year. Participants sign-up and fundraise to become superheros for a day by rappelling off a towering high-rise building – all in support of Canadians living with disabilities.

Red Shirt Day & National AccessAbility Week

Red Shirt Day is an Easter Seals initiative to raise awareness and promote dialogue about accessibility and inclusion of people living with disabilities. Taking place on Wednesday during National AccessAbility Week each year, Canadians can show their support for people who are living with disabilities, accessibility and inclusion by wearing red on Red Shirt Day.

Achilles St. Patrick’s Day 5km Charity Run Toronto

Easter Seals Canada is proud to partner with Achilles Canada on the St. Patrick’s Day 5km Charity Run in Toronto held in March each year. Canadians are invited to sign up, fundraise and run the 5km course in the heart of downtown Toronto while decked out in their best St. Paddy’s Day outfits. Come join in the fun and revelry!
