2019 Family Fun Day
On Sunday August 28, Ajax Downs hosted the 10th Family Fun Day

As well as past favourites like Zoo to You, Scientists in School and Penguin Fish Fling joined the line-up this year, along with a long list of free treats and activities all in support of Ajax Pickering Hospital.

Kids had a chance to run on the horse-racing track in the very popular ‘Try-the-Track’ event and could also get up close and personal with the jockeys and horses as well as become a rookie rider themselves thanks to Ontario Equestrian.

The 2019 Family Fun Day also featured draws and giveaways, face painting, Dan the Music Man and inflatable bouncers.

Over the years, this event has raised over $110,000 (to date) to support different departments at Ajax Pickering Hospital including the MRI, Women’s & Children’s and The Shoulder Centre.

Of course all these fun activities were against the backdrop of the exciting quarter horse races being run, including the Town of Ajax's Mayor’s Cup.

Again this year was the Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation’s Car Raffle draw for a 2019 Trax! - A special thanks to VanDusen Chevrolet Buick GMC for making this raffle possible.

Ajax Downs and the QROOI host the annual free community event to support Ajax Pickering Hospital. Ajax Downs is a family-owned business that is proud to support the Ajax community, as is the Racing Owners’ association, with both associations located in Ajax. Funded entirely with corporate donations by Ajax Downs, QROOI and a number of event sponsors, Family Fun Day is held in order to give back to the community.
