A Look Back at Our Inaugural Run for the Kids:

The 1st annual Run for the Kids was a tremendous success! On June 25, 2023, in Rondeau Provincial Park, we raised an outstanding $80,000 for the Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent (CTC Foundation). The event saw 250 participants of all ages and abilities come together to run, walk, or move either a 200m or a 5km distance, with each kilometer representing a step towards supporting local kids and families.The overwhelming show of support from the community made it a truly heartwarming and unforgettable day for all.


Raising awareness and funds for the
Children's Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent.

Funds raised by the CTC-CK Foundation directly supports therapy and services that our children and youth so richly deserve.

Support from the community for the Children’s Treatment Centre and Foundation will help ensure that the Centre can continue providing specialized care and therapy to the children in Chatham-Kent, so that children of all abilities can reach their full potential.
