Non-for-profits SMILE and the Special Olympics Ontario proudly present the fourth annual event "Recfest", which aims to create awareness and promote diversity through a day full of recreational sports, games and music. In Ontario, 1 in every 7 people have a disability of some kind; often these individuals require a helping hand in connecting to available community resources to support their needs. Our aim is to create an event that brings our community together to celebrate abilities of all kinds. Special Olympics Ontario and SMILE aim to create awareness and bridge this gap. Special guests for this year include select Toronto Argonauts players, Peel police, Mississauga firefighters, Microsoft Canada and many more.
We invite you to come out and help us support and celebrate diversity in our community!!
