All families welcome!

Mazinaajim Children’s Foundation and the Dilico Children’s Mental Health Team are hosting an event for Young Imaginations. The 4th Annual Dare to Dream Day is a free fun filled event for children and their families. Children will get to visit and interact with a number of fun and exciting booths and experience a variety of hands on activities. Children will have a chance to meet and talk with many different Superheroes and Princesses, take fun photos and hear from some amazing role models. Youth attending the event will all receive a free gift bag and enjoy a free BBQ dinner.

The event will be held on May 5th 2022, during Children’s Mental Health Week at the Da Vinci Centre at 340 Waterloo Street from 3:00pm-6:00pm.

All proceeds will go to children and youth seeking bursaries for education, recreation and cultural opportunities. The Foundation supports numerous children and families to participate in unique life experiences like extracurricular school and community sports, music/art lessons, and cultural experiences, like regalia making. In addition, support for education and leadership opportunities is offered by providing assistive technology and participation at youth leadership conferences, training and courses.

Dare to Dream will raise much needed funds to help the Mazinaajim Children’s Foundation meet their vision of a future where all children have the opportunity to achieve their dreams and grow and develop into healthy community members. With your support we can continue to invest in our children, families and communities to ensure they advance in their education, health and wellbeing.
