Children's Foundation Benefactor



The Children's Foundation of Guelph and Wellington is honoured to be the recipients of the funds raised by the Southern Ontario Amazing Race (SOAR), one of the most original and exciting local fundraisers. SOAR is a two day adventure competition modeled after the TV show The Amazing Race. 20 teams of two race around Wellington County and beyond competing in challenges of all sorts that test racers' mental and physical strengths.  


SOAR is put together by a dedicated and creative group of volunteers who manage every aspect of the event including sponsorship, a volunteer crew of over 100 people and all logistics of the event. To date, SOAR has raised over $900,000 for the Children's Foundation. For their hard work and the incredible achievement in raising $143,000 for the 10th Anniversary Race in 2013, the SOAR Directors were presented with the Sandra Weafer Community Champion Award.

CFGW Board Chair Jack Watson presents the Sandra Weafer Community Champion Award to the SOAR Directors (L-R) Ilona Farry, Glenna Banda, Jason Clattenburg, Jocelyn Wessels, Lilly Clattenburg, Matt Steffler, Darren Farry, Chris Jaroszko, Laura Cassian, Scott Hammond
