I can’t make the event, but I’d like to support the cause. Can I make a donation?
Yes! You can make a donation when you select “Register”. A tax receipt will be issued following our event for any cash donations made through this Eventbrite page.

Who is organizing this event?
Dave and Robyn Way’s son Miller is affected by autism and they have turned personally to these three organizations for support. Autism therapy is expensive and Robyn & Dave count themselves lucky that they can access therapies that help Miller without having to make meaningful sacrifices. Unfortunately, many other families are not as lucky. Core autism therapy is not covered by OHIP or most private benefits plans in the way that other disabilities and illnesses are covered. This event is Robyn & Dave’s first step in a lifetime of (hopefully) giving back to the people who have been there for their family when they needed support most. They are thrilled to have a committee of amazing friends to help organize this years event.
