This year, we’re partnering with Carefor, a local not-for-profit charity that provides home healthcare and community support services across Eastern Ontario. All funds raised will support Carefor’s seven Adult Day Programs — a lifeline for hundreds of people living with dementia and their care partners in Ottawa. Carefor is proud to be at the forefront of ensuring the health and wellbeing of these people, today and into the future.
