(Get directions here)


1. Do you take walk-in registrations?

Yes, we accept walk-in registrations and entry by donation of $5 per person. Upon arrival at the event, enter through the main entrance of the building and you will find our Walk-In Registration kiosk there.

2. What is the difference between walk-in registration and entry by donation?

A walk-in registration  means you and/or your family intends to go through the obstacle course in addition to accessing all the other event features. Rates are based on the standard registration fees of $75 per family (of any size), $40 per adult (for adults running alone or as adult teams), and $20 per youth (for 10-17 year-old youth running the course without their parents*). An entry by donation of $5 per person gives access to all event features EXCEPT for the obstacle course.

Please note that the dunk tank challenge is an entirely separate feature that costs $5 for 5 balls (minimum $5).

*youth running without their parents must have at least one (1) parent signing the parental consent, waiver, and release form.

3. What method(s) of payment do you accept?

We accept credit card, cash, and cheque payments for all transactions at the event — registration, entry by donation, Dunk Tank Challenge, or silent auction payments.

4. Can I just come for the live entertainment and let my kids do the toddlers’ course?

For sure, come out and enjoy the official last day of summer with us! You can opt to do the entry by donation of $5 per person. That will give you access to the live entertainment, free bbq lunch, silent auction, caricature station, toddlers’ course, and the dunk tank challenge.

5. Is there a specific time our team is scheduled to run the obstacle course?

Nope, it’s on a first-come-first-served basis. The obstacle course opens at 8:30 am and the last call for teams to run the obstacle course is at 1:00 pm. You and your team can come anytime between that.

6. What should I and my team bring to the event?

  • Water (there will be some bottled water available at the event, thanks to our donor, Nestle Waters Canada, but you just want to make sure you got some in case people are extra thirsty that day)
  • Lawn chairs
  • Extra change of clothes and towels (there are some water games within the obstacle course, one of them, a slip n’ slideBesides, your kids might want to dunk you at our Dunk Tank Challenge…all for a GREAT cause!)
  • Cash / Cheque (just in case you might be tempted to bid for our exciting silent auction experiences, or dunk someone at the event — it’s $5 per 5 balls!)

7. Is there a prize for the fastest team?

While Family Adventure Challenge is a family-friendly non-competitive fundraiser, we do have volunteers at the Start and Finish line that can track your team’s run time if you’re feeling competitive against friends or family running in a separate team.  Should you wish, we will put your run time sheet up on the board at the pavilion.

Having said that, we do have a TOP FUNDRAISER PRIZE of two (2) 3rd row Green tickets to the Toronto Maple Leafs vs Boston Bruins November 15th game at Scotiabank Arena courtesy of Jeff Neumann and Stephen Foti of Coldwell Banker Neumann Real Estate — awarded to the team that raises the highest total pledged amount!

8. Are there available alternatives for those with dietary restrictions?

Our lovely BBQ lunch donors are making every effort to provide gluten-free alternatives.
