22q at the Zoo - Toronto Event

Sunday, 2nd June 2024 10:00 am

The International 22q11.2 Foundations’ Annual 22q at the Zoo – Worldwide Awareness Day (22q at the Zoo) is an international initiative to raise awareness about chromosome 22q differences. The Toronto event is co-hosted by the 22q Deletion Syndrome Clinic at SickKids Hospital and the Dalglish Family 22q Clinic. The focus of the day is for individuals with 22q, their families and Clinic staff to socialize, network, and raise awareness of 22q in the community. Participants also have the chance to join in fun activities with their friends and families and enjoy a day at the Toronto Zoo. This year, thanks to generous donations to the SickKids Foundation 22q Family Fund, the organizers are able to subsidize the cost of admission tickets. This means that, in spite of increasing admission ticket prices, we are able to offer tickets at a lower price than last year.

Our next event will take place at the Toronto Zoo on Sunday June 2nd, 2024! Please note that our date is different from that of the international event.

Note that this year our event will be held at a new location - the Simba East/West Picnic Site NOT the Africa Picnic Site as in previous years. There will be a map available at the Registration Desk.

Please register for the 22q at the Zoo – Toronto Event by Friday May 24th, 2024 on the event website:
