Register Now for Sunshine Float for Dreams 2017

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

February 15, 2017 - Registration for the 2nd Annual Sunshine Float for Dreams is now open.  This exciting signature event from The Sunshine Foundation of Canada, taking place on Saturday, June 17th, 2017, will bring communities from around Southwestern Ontario together for boatloads of fun on the Grand River. Floating from just South of Paris, ON to Brant Conservation Park, participants in Sunshine Float for Dreams will raise vital funds to support Sunshine – making dreams come true for children across Canada living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses.  The inaugural event in 2016 raised over $80,000 for Sunshine Dream Programs. With close to 300 participants, the first-of-its-kind event in Ontario was an amazing day of fun in the sun, made possible by volunteers from various sponsors and business supporters, and vital assistance from police, fire and EMS personnel.

In year two, Sunshine Float for Dreams promises to be the hottest fundraising and team-building event of the summer.  Teams of friends, family, and co-workers are invited to come together and show their team spirit and team-work skills as they compete in fun on-water challenges. For those a little-less competitive, taking the “scenic-route” and enjoying the beautiful scenery of the 5.5km stretch along the Grand River is a great way to get out in the community and support Sunshine.  During the Float After Party, floaters will enjoy food, drinks, and entertainment. With lots of fundraising incentives and prizes to be won, Sunshine is sure that registration will fill up quickly.

“We’re ready to float!” says Nancy Sutherland, Sunshine’s CEO. “Float for Dreams is a terrific fundraising event that everyone can participate in, regardless of ability and we’re really proud of that. Join us on June 17th for boatloads of fun!”
