Maya's March is a 5 km walk raising funds to benefit PCD research at SickKids hospital. Maya's March will take place June 5, 2016 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
— The Walk —
Maya's March on June 5, 2016 is a 5 km walk beginning at 21 Conlins Road at 10 a.m. The Walk will travel along Military Trail to Old Kingston Road, along Lawson Road, through beautiful Colonel Danforth Park, up Old Kingtson Road, then back along Military Trail ending up where we began. Along the route there will be water available, way farers to guide you, and plenty of good friends by your side. The walk will be followed by a BBQ with live band The Phil & John Show, and a silent auction!

— The Proceeds —
Money raised through Maya's March will be directed to PCD research at Sick Kids Hospital. Research into PCD is extremely difficult because there is such a lack of knowledge of it (therefore, many misdiagnoses) and there is such a small population. The PCD Clinic at SickKids is the only one in in the country. Our goal is to raise enough money to advance research into PCD, perhaps setting up a fund to enable families from across the country to be able to access the expertise at SickKids. To date we have raised over $80,000. This year our goal is $15,000.
