Local Walk Ambassadors: The Ferraro Family

Ferraro FamilyA respected registered insurance broker and philanthropist, Gianni (John) Ferraro exemplifies a strong commitment to his business and his community.

John built a successful business while simultaneously facing time commitments and challenges as a father to three children, all of whom have been diagnosed with a form of Autism.

Alongside his wife of 18 years, Fidalma (Fi) Ferraro, the mother of his three beautiful children, together they have nurtured both business and family simultaneously. Together they share a passion for their family and desire to give back to the community.

Outside of work, John and Fidalma are heavily involved with the charity and non-profit organization Autism Speaks Canada. Making a difference and creating better awareness of this range of conditions that affects 1 in 68 children is extremely important to them. Wishing to help in every way they can, the Ferraros participate in an annual fundraiser to support Autism Speaks Canada.

John and Fi are a true representation of how hard work, passion and a positive character can create and maintain outstanding success, regardless of personal and professional hurdles. Autism Speaks Canada is grateful for their support and the support of their company, Oracle RMS, a leader in the insurance industry and one of the top fundraising teams in the 2017 GTA walk.
