Family of ARCH’s past client taking on a 42km marathon fundraiser
ARCH Disability Law Centre represented Emily Eaton and her family in a fight for inclusive education for children with disabilities, in a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada. This seminal case, Eaton v. Brant County Board of Education, was a milestone in the fight for the right of children with disabilities to inclusive education, a fight that is unfortunately still on-going.
Now many years later, Emily’s brother Peter, is taking on running a marathon-length distance in a fund-raising and awareness-raising effort. Peter has decided he will run 42km on his 42nd birthday, and has generously decided to make his run a fund-raising effort, with all donations to be given to ARCH Disability Law Centre. ARCH is incredibly grateful for this opportunity to let our community know about his upcoming run and his efforts to raise awareness about the need for inclusive education for all students with disabilities, and every child’s right to inclusive education. This will be Peter’s first time running a marathon-length distance, and we wish him the best of luck in his endeavour. We will be cheering him on from the (virtual) sidelines!

ARCH wishes to thank Peter for his extraordinarily generous decision to undertake this fund-raising effort. What an incredible way to spend your 42nd birthday Peter!
