Virtual Rib 'n' Roll

July 26, 2020

6-9 pm


image003In addition to great ribs and music, Rotary Rib ‘n’ Roll is an opportunity for you to help serve your community in a tangible way. Join us at Rib n Roll and help support four great organizations – William Osler Health System, Tour for Kids, ErinoakKids and the Rotary Club of Brampton Youth Activities. By attending Rib n Roll you help these great causes.


Rotary Rib ‘n’ Roll this year is supporting ErinOakKids.


It’s in the determined face of a child striving to master a new task or action. It’s in the encouraging guidance of a therapist telling her “You can do it!” It’s in the cheers of a mother and father watching their son do something for the very first time. It’s in the hugs a volunteer gives to a discouraged teenager.


Like all children, those with disabilities are filled with potential and dreams for the future.

Through the $20 Million In My Dreams Campaign, we invite our community to join ErinoakKids in helping kids transcend the limits imposed by disability and other challenges.

Thanks to the Province of Ontario, our three new purpose-built and fully accessible buildings, scheduled to open in early 2017, will enable us to treat and support significantly more children, youth and their families in the coming years.

Together, we provide the resources and facilities critical to helping kids discover their potential and reach their dreams.

Founded in 1971 by a group of concerned parents in Mississauga and other community members, ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development has grown to become Ontario’s largest Children’s Treatment Centre, serving more than 14,500 children with disabilities and their families each year.

The children and youth we serve in Halton, Peel and Dufferin have a wide range of physical and/or developmental disabilities, including communication disorders, autism, hearing loss and deafness, low vision and blindness.

From our current 10 sites, we provide a comprehensive array of medical, therapy and development services to help clients from birth to age 19. Our 650 staff speak more than 27 languages, including American Sign Language.

OUR NEW BRAMPTON SITE (Also serving Caledon & Dufferin)

At approximately 121,000 square feet, the Brampton site will be our largest location, serving 40 per cent of the children and youth we see and will employ about 240 staff members. The building will sit on an 8-acre parcel of land surrounded by natural beauty, and backing onto a forested area and natural stream that will offer opportunities for outdoor treatment sessions and activities.

Our new Brampton site is located at the intersection McVean Drive and Castlemore Road in northeast Brampton. This location will serve the more northerly portion of our catchment area, including children and families living in Brampton, Caledon and Dufferin County
