The Ontario SPCA Friends For Life - Walk-a-thon presented by Iams
The Ontario SPCA Friends for Life! walk-a-thon is a provincial program of the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Ontario SPCA) designed to raise funds and awareness for the protection and care of all animals in Ontario.
May is Ontario SPCA Friends for Life! Walk-a-thon month, and around the province thousands of walk participants will enjoy a stroll with their families around the park in their community to help raise support for Ontario SPCA animal protection and care services. Even people without pets come out to enjoy the day and support this worthwhile cause.
Prior to 2006, each Branch organized and promoted their walk-a-thon independent of one another and at different times of the year. The Branches were responsible for all promotion, communication, and sponsorship related to their individual events. With the new provincial-based program we are now able to minimize our costs, unify our branding, maximize the exposure of the walk-a-thon and promote more broadly through various media outlets.
The Participants human and animal are fortunate to have each other; their own “friend for life”. This event is their opportunity to help the thousands of animals in Ontario SPCA adoption centre’s across the province that are waiting in hope of finding their own “friend for life” someone to share life with, someone to love them, and be loved back many times over!
