He’s been on the roof, he’s been on the road and he’s been at your door. But for his 10th and final year, Ted returned to the roof where it all began.
After spending six nights on top of Morello’s YIG in Peterborough, Ted Dawes came down the ladder for the last time on May 21, 2011. He was greeted with an emotional welcome from his family and friends, and union sisters and brothers that have supported him over the years.
Thanks to the amazing public, volunteers, and local businesses and community partners that donated more than 230 silent auction items, the event raised more than $20,000!

This year’s event brings Ted’s 10-year fundraising total to more than $157,000.
