As you know, it’s free for “Mini Tarts” to participate.  But the Butter Tart Trot is a charity event with all net proceeds going to Camp Quality, to help send kids from Southern Ontario, affected by childhood cancer, to camp for one-week this summer! If you’d like to help support children and families from Southern Ontario who have faced a diagnosis of childhood cancer and deserve a chance to go to camp to forget about their illness, even for just one week – some of them from the region you live in – we would be so grateful! Simply click here to fundraise online, or download the attached pledge form to collect donations from friends and family which you can bring with you on event day.

2018’s Butter Tart Trot was a fantastic event – it couldn’t have been a more exciting and successful day for this sold out crowd, raising over $17,000 for children with cancer (up from $8,000 the year before)!
