My Story…

This year more than ever, our students are going to need our help. As a member of the York University Retirees' Association I'm raising funds for scholarships for graduate students in need at York University. In my professional life I witnessed the value of this recognition to students. As a Retiree, continuing to support these financial challenges has become a passion. Our goals are lofty, but certainly achievable with your help. Please help me. Please help to fully fund these endowed scholarships by making a donation to support my Charity Walk. A Tax receipt from York University will be issued directly for donations of more than $20.00.


Please support graduate scholarships at York University by registering to walk or run 5 km in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 18. One of YURA's major activities is raising funds for graduate scholarships. On the day of the race, our volunteers will walk or run as a group, and then meet for lunch. We will have fun, and at the same time help the student community in an impactful and meaningful way through recruiting sponsors. To learn how to register to walk or run on October 18 for YURA, please contact Ian Greene at, or 416-571-8742.
