Big Toddle<br />
August 19<br />
10:00am - 12:30pm

The Big Toddle is an annual community event that encourages children aged 0 to 7 years to participate in an activity: a lap around a designated path in Trinity Bellwoods Park. Whether they crawl, toddle, walk, run, or are strolled or carried by an adult, children and their families come together to complete the activity and raise awareness of the importance of quality early learning and family support programs.

The more the merrier! We encourage you to invite your friends and families to register and join us – even if they’ve never attended a CMCP program before. Great fun for a great cause!
