ADCO Member Centres & Families Team Up To Support Children's HospitalsEvery year, the staff, parents and students of ADCO child care programs organize and participate in ADCO Kids Helping Kids Walkathon events to raise funds for Ontario's four regional children's hospitals. Together, these events become the "ADCO Kids Helping Kids" Walkathon, which over the course of more than 20 years has generated over a $1,000,000 for this worthy cause. ADCO member centres are proud of their involvement in this event and it does much more than simply raise money. "The ADCO Kids Helping Kids Walkathon is one way we help children develop their sense of philanthropy and social responsibility," ways ADCO Co-President Kerri Whitaker. "It helps them see that we're all connected and that giving to others also makes them feel good about themselves. It's an important lesson." Thank you to all of the ADCO centres, staff, families, children and sponsors who helped make ADCO's 2017 Walkathon a success. Together, we raised nearly $25,000!
