We are thrilled to announce that we are once again hosting our biggest event of the year: Freedom to Move: Run, Walk, and Wheel for Dystonia in June 2023!

After hosting virtual events exclusively for the last three years, we are excited to announce that this year’s event will be a mix of both in-person event opportunities and virtual. Participants will complete a walk, run, or wheel either virtually in their own community or at one of our five in-person sites across Canada, including our Toronto event on June 11th at Downsview Park.
