Our story…

Getting out there and running or walking in the fresh air is a great way to stay physically and mentally healthy. So why not also join our team?! This year, The Youville Grow Getters, are taking part in the upcoming 2021 Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K. As this year’s event takes place from June 2-July 5, we encourage you to do the 5k, 10k, or half marathon “your way”. Break it up into a kilometer each day, complete two 5k’s, or do whatever plan works for you!


This event will raise funds to provide an improved outdoor space for our residents and visiting families. In the past year our residents have been restricted from regular off-site amusements such as field trips, outings with loved ones, and walks around the neighbourhood. As well with the warmer arriving, this urged us to look at how we can upgrade our areas outside the building and the importance of it.


Better outdoor living environments will contribute to richer social and emotional interactions and physical well-being. Useful spaces in conjunction with a peaceful music and rehabilitation therapy program, leads to decreased stress and anxiety. Purposeful gardens provide opportunities for time spent outside which enhance resident’s moods by bringing them closer to the natural world and making daily life more interesting.
