2020 Adapted Fundraiser in Lieu of Tournament
Staying apart still allows us to make a big difference together!
To protect the health and safety of Aptus' generous supporters, we are not hosting our traditional tournament this year. Aptus relies heavily on the funds raised by the tournament -- Aptus' largest annual fundraiser. Last year's tournament made sizeable payments towards two residences for people with limited mobility, purchased 3 new vans, and funded over 50 critically-needed enhancements for safety and accessibility.
This year, Aptus needs financial support more than ever. Since the COVID-19 pandemic caused a closure for daytime programming and schools, hundreds of families have been under considerable pressure to provide care and programming without support. Families who have someone with a developmental disability are significantly more likely to be low-income. The need is great for families to return to work and/or access a break. Now with programs reopening, provincial guidelines and research are recommending participation in programs be limited to 50% of former numbers. This leaves half of families still in great need for programming and/or support.
You can help make a difference!
With your support, Aptus can exponentially increase respite and programming resources for families across the GTA. Aptus will launch a higher number of respite opportunities than ever before -- with smaller programs, staggered through the day, evening and weekends. We can add 400 rotating respite spots. Aptus will be sharing this model with other agencies in the province, potentially making an impact for thousands of families in need.
