April 17-20, 2018

Every April, friends, families, co-workers and fitness buffs of all ages join DeSantos Martial Arts students on our annual walk from Toronto to Niagara Falls in support of the DeSantos Foundation.  Join our students and families for one day, all four days, or even welcome us as we arrive at the Falls.

But for now until the end of 2017, we would like to focus on a Holiday Giving Campaign. Contribute $25 to fill a school backpack for a child in need , $50 for a backpack with a uniform and shoes for a child, or contribute the amount which best reflects your commitment to our campaign. You may show your support through any of this year's black belt candidates by going to their personal fundraising page, or to our Grandmaster Kwan Jan Nim Veronica DeSantos and donate to her page. All funds raised go directly to the campaign and we thank you in advance for your generosity.

We are committed to the health and education of families at home and abroad.  Funds raised benefit the non-profit DeSantos Foundation in partnership with ADHIKA. for more details

Register to Walk

Anyone may register to walk for one day, all four days, or any combination of days.  The registration fee includes a t-shirt to commemorate your walk.  


There is much to organize along the walk: snacks and hydration, bathroom breaks, sponsors and our drivers who support the walkers along the route.  Call us at 416-699-5078 or sign up online if you'd like to help out.


Funds raised benefit the non-profit DeSantos Foundation in partnership with ADHIKA via CanadaHelps.  Tax receipts can be issued for amounts of $25 and over.  Each walker is encouraged to raise a minimum amount and you can choose the specific walker you wish to support from the convenient drop down list.

Corporate Sponsorships

We offer multiple levels of corporate sponsorship.  Contact us at 416-699-5078 to find out how to participate.

Cheer us on!

Follow the daily updates at and on our Facebook page. If you see us in your neighbourhood, feel free to introduce yourself and give some encouragement to our walkers.  Many walkers are joined by their family members and friends as we approach the Falls.

About This Charity

The non-profit DeSantos Foundation is a way for DeSantos Premier Martial Arts students and their friends and families to give back to our communities. This is a monetary fund that supports individuals and families who are socially disadvantaged within our communities, both locally and globally, by providing increased resources to help them reach their highest potential. Previous projects have included school breakfast programs locally and internationally; shoes, uniforms and scholarships for children in Guyana and the Philippines; various food drives and community initiatives such as the Voices Youth Empowerment Symposium; and support for the Red Door Family Shelter. We are partnered with ADHIKA, a non-profit organization supporting Filipino communities at home and abroad. See for more information.
