2 fun-filled weeks

to walk, run, bike, dance—however you want to move!

100 million steps

together with 1,000 participants is our big goal.

$100,000 raised

so far by our amazing sponsors to support local kids.

Make an impact in real kids’ lives. Here’s what that looks like:

As young people continue to struggle with their mental health, it means the world to have somewhere to go between the classroom and home. That’s why United Way works with local partners like Mississippi Mills Youth Centre to ensure kids have access to after-school programs and drop-ins.

“I want people to know there’s no judgement here, and it’s a fun place to hang out and express your creativity.”

I’m signed up but need help spreading the word.

I want to show my support with a donation.

Thank you to our generous sponsors

Our sponsors want you to step up to the challenge. Together, they’ve raised a generous contribution of $100,000 and counting to help kids succeed and they are asking you to help us reach our goal of 100 million steps with 1,000 participants. Move for Youth wouldn’t be possible without our title partner National Bank, our incredible sponsors, and our corporate partners.
