Footsteps for Families


This year we are happy to launch our 11th Annual Footsteps for Families event virtually as “Footsteps for Families – Home Sweet Home Edition!”   We are excited about this shift and look forward to playing, walking and fundraising to support RMHCSCO families. 

How will Footsteps for Families – Home Sweet Home Edition work?

Footsteps for Families will remain a pledge based, fundraising campaign. The event will continue to celebrate fun family moments together, and include a celebratory walk. Most importantly, the event will be supporting our families when they need it the most – by providing the comforts of home in both our House and our Family Rooms. 

Here’s how to get involved:

  1. Register online as an individual or create (or join) a team with your family and friends.  (we have waived the registration fee). 
  2. Customize your personal fundraising page and start collecting donations – share your personal story and why you are supporting our families through this event.
  3. This event is all about having fun as a family!  Each week, all registrants will receive a fun family challenge for you to do with your family/team.  Be sure to join in the fun and remember to snap and share a photo of you completing each challenge for your chance to win fun prizes!
  4. Equally as important, this event is about raising critical funds to support our families.  Every week, we will also be sharing fundraising challenges or tips. We have a new, exciting prize structure this year – check it out on the website!
  5. Sunday, July 12th will be our celebration day for 2020 Footsteps for Families – Home Sweet Home Edition, where together, virtually, we will celebrate from the comfort of our own homes (stay tuned for more details!).   We then invite you to head outside and enjoy your own celebratory walk, wherever you want - around your own neighbourhood, through a local park, on pathways….the choices are endless!  

Your Support Matters

As you may know, Footsteps for Families is one of our largest annual fundraisers.   Last year, the event raised over $60,000 for RMHCSCO and our families. Whether you’ve used one of our programs or know someone who has, we are so grateful for your commitment to providing our families with the comforts of home when they need it the most.  Given the current situation that communities are facing, our current families, and those to come will need your support more than ever. 

We are excited to be moving forward with Footsteps for Families – Home Sweet Home Edition, and hope you will join the fun!
