Help Frances raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

This will be my 5th Scotiabank 5K.  Our team (York University Retirees Association) is raising funds to support graduate students at York.  The past two years have been especially difficult for graduate students due to the uncertainties of COVID, the lack of access to laboratories and other  facilities, and also the lack of opportunities for part time work to support their studies.   I hope you will be able to support our team with a small contribution to help our students.  


Please support graduate scholarships at York University by registering to walk or run 5 km in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 17, 2021. 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 17, 2021 for YURA, please contact Ian Greene at, or 416-571-8742.
