Rally for DHK

Thank you to our sponsors, participants and donors for joining us on October 2nd for the inaugural Rally for DHK presented by Benchmark Corp. Teams set off from The Darling Home for Kids armed with a Rally Kit filled with clues and challenges. After using their odometer to navigate to the first Checkpoint teams were challenged to assemble a toy car as fast as they could. The wind was an added challenge! For Leg 2, teams had to navigate using compass directions (North, South, East and West) to make it to Checkpoint 2. Once there, teams had a quick challenge before heading out on leg 3. Checkpoint 3 gave teams a chance to slow down and enjoy lunch, courtesy of GFS. The last leg brought teams to the Finish Line for one last challenge to build the tallest tower out of blocks – points went to the tallest building! Throughout each leg, teams had to find clues that were given along the way and had other chances to earn points in the hopes of winning the coveted trophy.

We are excited to share that the inaugural Rally for DHK presented by Benchmark Corp., raised over $43,000 which will be directed towards The Embrace Campaign. Children at The Darling Home for Kids are embraced within our walls, our corridors, and our spaces. We have a dream to help more kids and families. With you, we’ll make it a reality. By supporting the Rally for DHK, you’re not just helping us expand our programs and services to accommodate more children and families, you’re helping build a new playroom where kids can just be kids, you’re helping to create quiet areas for overwhelmed families to find support within one of our family programs, you’re helping expand our Snoezelen room to engage kids’ senses and imaginations with lights, textures, images, sounds, and colours, and you’re helping to add more bedroom spaces so that families in crisis can call in times of need.

Orlando Corporation has pledged to match net proceeds from the Rally for DHK, as well as all donations directed towards The Embrace Campaign, up to $3.5million.
