For the past 11 years, Jessica Reid, our Co-Founder and Executive Director of Programming & Research, has organized our annual fundraiser Kilometres for KIP (KMs for KIP). This year on October 11th, we will be walking from our office at the Franklin Horner Community Center to Humber College.
The goals of KMs for KIP are to increase awareness of the need to support children affected by parental incarceration in Canada and to raise funds to support our vital programs and supports. 100% of the funds raised go directly to providing supportive programs to optimize the outcomes of children affected by incarceration.
KMs for KIP has 4 legs this year. Each leg is walked by a specific group of supporters who work with us to help end the stigma of having a parent involved with the criminal justice system, bridge the gap in support, and break the devastating cycles associated with parental incarceration. To register or learn more about the walk, please contact Derek Reid at 416 505 5333.

These strong, dedicated and resilient supporters walked 55km from Toronto to Hamilton for Kids with Incarcerated Parents. Their feat is a testament that we are stronger together and can achieve anything that we set our minds to.
