ACRC Durham 001 has chosen Variety Village as our designated charitable organization. Variety serves children with disabilities, who are our intended beneficiaries of the funds we shall be raising on behalf of the organization in the coming year and for years to come.
Through our programs and services, Variety ? The Children?s Charity of Ontario makes a profound difference in the spirit and lives of children and young people with disabilities and their families in the greater Toronto area and across Ontario. For over 60 years our goal has been to improve the quality of life and integration into society of all children, regardless of their abilities.
Both at our flagship project Variety Village, a fitness and life skills facility, and out in the community, we?re inspiring children and their families to see their potential and become active and proud of their accomplishments.
By offering specialized programs and services, we create a level playing field without barriers, intimidation or other obstacles. This encourages all children to reach for their goals so they can feel comfortable enough to participate in a game of wheelchair basketball, give a motivational speech in front of hundreds of business people, or apply for their first job.
