My Story…

I am pleased to participate as a team member of the York University Retirees' Association in the Scotiabank Charity Virtual Marathon in October. I had worked in higher education for five decades, as a part-time student also most of the time. Therefore, I see the importance of the Association's goal in raising funds for the establishment of an endowment for deserving graduate students with financial needs. I hope, with the support of family and friends, I can contribute $1000 to the endowment. A big advance thank-you to all of you who help me to achieve this target amount. Tax receipts will be issued for all contributions of $20 or more!


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.
