My Story…

This is the second year for YURA to be part of the Scotiabank fundraiser, and my second year doing the 5 km walk/run. We're all working in a different world this year, but students still need financial support ... perhaps now more than ever. I would appreciate your support in helping raise these funds as we work toward our goal of having these scholarships fully endowed. Your donation will lead to a (prompt) charitable contribution receipt from York University, via email. Wishing you and yours health and safety.


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.
