What should my fundraising goal be?

We recommend that each individual aims to raise $250. This may seem daunting but many participants in previous years have easily surpassed this goal. Fundraising is easier than you think! With the helpful tools on your online fundraising page and support from the Friends for Life! Walk™ team, reaching your goal will be a walk in the park. If you need further assistance, please email walk@ospca.on.ca

Will I receive a tax receipt for fundraising?

All donations over $10 will receive a tax receipt. Tax receipts are valid for Canadian residents only. All donor information, including full name and home address, must be provided.

Can I bring an animal to the walk?

Dogs are welcome to attend the Friend for Life! Walk™! Please remember, you are responsible for your animal at all times. If your dog does not enjoy the company of other canines or people, please leave him/her at home. Please poop and scoop- don’t bend and pretend.
