a walk/run in support of Easter Seals

Do More seeks to celebrate the everyday moments.

The seemingly small or the undoubtedly big. We believe it is these everyday victories that should be marked and remembered! Let’s celebrate having done a little bit more than the day before.

Do More works to connect, encourage and support.

Do More is about you and me working together. We offer to walk alongside our friends, family, and community on their journey of growth. We don’t just celebrate our victories, but the victories of those in our community as well.

Do More believes in the empowerment of others.

We strive to be a resource to those in our community that need support. We are committed to raising awareness and funds so that Easter Seals can have an even greater impact on kids with physical disabilities.

We want to ensure that anyone anywhere has the opportunity to join! That is why Do More takes place wherever you are. You do not have to follow a particular course or track a specific distance. Your local park or a quiet trail. On an early morning stroll or an evening run as the sunsets. Participate on your own or join a team and celebrate doing more together. So, pick a location, find a time and do more together for a great cause. Gather with friends and family, to walk, run, ride or roll this Sunday, June 12th, 2022.

Easter Seals

Questions?

Where do I walk/run?

The Do More Walk/Run happens wherever you are! You pick your course.

If you would like to participate in an in-person walk, stay tuned for information on our Do More Hubs!

How long do I have to walk/run?

You can walk, run, ride or roll whatever distance is most comfortable and doable for you. If you are more familiar with virtual walks and runs, we encourage you to challenge yourself.

Is this a timed or tracked event?

Do More is not a timed event. However, we want to encourage you to do more. So, if that means timing yourself to see if you can walk a bit longer, run a bit faster or ride a bit further – then go for it! You’ve got this and we will be cheering you on!

Where can I find people participating in my area?

1. Register with your local BioPed Clinic by joining their BioPed Team.

2. Join the Do More with BioPed Facebook group to stay up to date and get connected with participants.

Why should I join a team?

Teams are a great way for you to connect and engage with your community and get to know the people in your area. Connect with fellow walkers or runners as you share your Do More journey.

Because life is better together!

Where can I learn more about Do More Hubs?

We are very excited about this year’s addition of Do More Hubs; a BioPed Clinic that will be hosting an in-person walk Sunday, June 12th in their city.

We will be sharing more information in the coming weeks via email and our social media platforms. Don’t worry you won’t miss it!

How do I raise funds for Easter Seals?

Upon registration, you will be able to set up a Do More profile page. Here you can customize your page with your story; your reasons for doing more for Easter Seals! You can share this page on your social media platforms or email directly to colleagues, friends and family. It’s simple yet effective and a great way to start your fundraising journey!

Will I receive a Welcome Kit?

Yes! Welcome Kits will be available for pick up at your BioPed Clinic the week before the event; Monday, June 6th to Friday, June 10th. You can also pay for direct shipping for delivery that same week.

To receive your Welcome Kit in time for the walk/run, please register by Wednesday, June 1st, 2022.

Can I get a donation receipt?

Yes, you can! Donation receipts will be provided by Easter Seals Ontario.

Where can I buy Do More swag?
