Once again, Environmental Services will be running for West Park in the upcoming Longboat Toronto Island Run on Sunday, Sept. 9!
Sponsor a runner
Go to the Strides for Sustainability fundraising page at westparkstrides.ca to donate and help the runners reach their fundraising goal of $2,000. If you're sponsoring a specific person, don't forget to include their name on the donation form when prompted.
Register to run
You can sign up for the 5k & 10k or one of the Kids’ Runs and enjoy a fun day on the Island. Sign up before July 31st to take advantage of the early bird special. If you’d like to run and fundraise with the West Park team, please register at torontoislandrun.com and contact Evon Harmer at Evon.Harmer@westpark.org to arrange your race kit pickup. Please note that registration fees go to the Longboat Island Run, not West Park.
Join the cheer squad
Not a runner but still want to participate? Come out to cheer on your West Park colleagues, family and friends and stay for the best post-race BBQ ever, available free to all runners. Enjoy the family picnic on the grass (bring your own snacks or buy food at the event) while waiting for the awards ceremony to begin. Don't forget to snap a few pictures for Instagram using the hashtags #westparkstrides and #getyourlifeback .
Prizes to be won
As a thank you for your commitment to fundraising for this year's run, we will be awarding the top fundraiser with a prize! Not to mention, anyone that makes a donation up until race day will also be entered into a draw to win a prize! Don't forget to check back after the event to find out if you're a winner.
Proceeds from the Strides for Sustainability Run will go to both the Get Your Life Back Campaign to support environmental sustainability in the new hospital and to the hospital’s highest priority needs.
A Big Thank you to everyone
Thank you for your support! We can't wait to share photos and report back on the run after the event. We'll fill you in on all the details! We'll let you know who of the West Park runners finished with the best time and we'll announce our prize winners as well!
