The Great Escape Dream Draw
Algoma Family Services Foundation’s Great Escape Dream Draw is an annual fundraising event that takes place in the spring. All proceeds go to Algoma Family Services (AFS) in support of the organizations’ programs and services that focus on children, youth and families with mental health disabilities in the Algoma District. The 2020 draw took place September 29th. To view the winners click the link below.
AFS Foundation is holding the first sanctioned duathlon right here in Sault Ste. Marie. The events will take place throughout the month of May culminating with a sanctioned duathlon in Sault Ste. Marie on June 14, 2020.
Alongside the preliminary duathlons, taking place at local high schools, The DU283 team will connect with students and community partners, promoting physical and mental well-being.
Through awareness campaigns and fundraising initiatives, DU283 will raise funds and work to bring clinicians to Sault Ste. Marie, ensuring every infant, child, youth, adult, and family will get the mental health care they need.
With your support, we can continue to inspire hope and wellness within our community. “Every child matters and mental health matters. Together we can help the kids who can’t help themselves. We appreciate your consideration and hope you will join us on this journey.”

FundScrip allows individuals to purchase gift cards while supporting an organization or charity of their choice. When you choose to support AFS Foundation, a percentage of the total cost of the gift card comes back to the Foundation despite any additional costs for the gift card buyer. This means that if you were to purchase $100 for Roots for example, $10 will be donated to the Foundation while the gift card is still worth the $100 that was paid for it. This means no additional cost for you – the gift card is received at face value but we also benefit from your purchase. There are countless retail options to choose from.
Gift cards can be ordered online by selecting the “Purchase Online” button below and using our invitation code CKTMPT. This method will ship gift cards directly to your home for a small shipping fee.
If you would like to place a gift card order in person, please call us at
(705) 945.5050 ext. 2671 or by visiting us at 205 McNabb Street, Sault Ste. Marie.
