Soaking Up the Sun at Float for Dreams

Dimanche 23 juin 2019

Some rocked the boat… but most went with the flow, enjoying the beautiful Sunshine while helping make dreams come true!

On June 22nd, 2019 ‘floatloads’ of teams came together enjoying incredible weather, camaraderie, and on-water fun as they floated down the Grand River raising funds to support Sunshine Dream Programs. This event helped ensure that dreams like Disney, swimming with Dolphins, and accessible playgrounds are a reality for kids with severe physical disabilities.

All of the teams were full of smiles, high energy, and great costumes ranging from Hawaiian luau to the lucky Irish and iconic rock stars.


Congratulations to our 2019 Float for Dreams award winners:
• Team FLOTUS won the 2019 Team Challenge award presented by VersaBank

• Team James (pictured right) won the Team Spirit award
