2015 Toronto Team CollageWhy form a team?

Walking together with your family, friends, and colleagues is a great way to participate in our Autism Speaks Canada Walk, and walking together has many benefits:

  • Everything is more fun when you do it with a group.
  • You will receive more recognition for your efforts!
  • You will raise more money. Team members raise 52% more than individual walkers (everyone likes a little competition).

Types of Teams

Family Teams

Family teams are made up of family and friends who are walking together to raise money for the ASD community, often because of a personal connection to autism.


Corporate & Service Provider Teams

Corporate and Service Provider teams are made up of co-workers and their family members, clients, and friends who want to show support for a cause that affects their community.  It is a great way to promote team-building, while motivating staff.  Involvement in a fundraising team challenge has even improved staff loyalty and retention.  A true win for any company!


School Teams

School teams are made up of students, parents, teachers, professors, researchers, student clubs, and administrators at any of the elementary, secondary, and post-secondary levels of education.  Increased school spirit, school involvement as well as an increased profile for your institution are some of the benefits for your school.
