Keanan's Family Walk celebrates Keanan and his legacy to help others.
This walk encourages families to spend time together doing activities they love the most.
Our little joker's birthday is April 1, 2022 and on this day we will kick off some family fun to celebrate!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we are considering people's health and well-being. As a result, we are not hosting an indoor formal event however if you want to join us outside, we would love to see you.
If you cannot join us in person, we encourage you to get outdoors for this year's Keanan's Family Walk anytime from April 1-3!
Go for a walk, jog around the block, play in your backyard, or take your dog to the park - get outdoors!

“(Music therapy) can make the difference between withdrawal and awareness, between isolation and interaction, between chronic pain and comfort — between demoralization and dignity.”

That beat you hear is the sound of the late Lily’s heartbeat, who lived just over a month due to congenital heart failure. It’s also the inspiration behind this song, Lily’s Raincoat, by Martina Sorbara of @DragonetteBand and Tom Westin, brought to life through a modern dance performance by @Emma Portner directed by Tajana B-Williams.
Our goal is to raise $1,200 to help provide healthy snacks to children at the Alliston Early ON Child and Family Centre. Watch this video to find out how you can support!
Special thanks to The Butcher Team for creating this wonderful video in 2017 to promote Keanan's Family Walk and to support the Early ON Child and Family Centre, Alliston.
