They Rocked their Floats!

On June 23rd, 2018, teams of floaters had a rocking good time on the Grand River! Sporting wet and wild costumes, this charity fundraiser rallied co-workers, friends, and families from across southwestern Ontario to paddle 5.5 km down the Grand River and test their skills with fun on-water team challenges.

The 2018 event raised over $75,600 to help transform the lives of children living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses! Support from business sponsors and the hundreds of enthusiastic floaters who raised pledges, are the essential ingredients to making Float for Dreams an exceptional event year over year.

The date for Sunshine Float for Dreams 2019 will be announced shortly. If you are interested in registering or receiving more information, please subscribe below:
