Hosted by the Canadian Tamil Congress, the Tamil Canadian Walk empowers hundreds of walkers to raise funds to support important causes both here in Canada and in Sri Lanka. Past beneficiaries of the annual walk include:
Canadian Cancer Society
Heart & Stroke Foundation and more
Centre for Addition & Mental Health (CAMH)
Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital
Sampur Housing Project
Canada-Batticaloa Friendship Farm
Over the years, this community walk has received the support of businesses, media, community organizations, and local partners, including Toronto Fire, and Toronto Police Services.
In addition to bringing the community together and raising funds for worthy causes, the event has helped expand the reach of, and create awareness on, many important issues.
