Help Noemi raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

Hola Amigos/Hello Friends,

This year I am doing the 5K to support children’s programs at North York Community House. We work with newcomers, refugees, and children from low-income communities helping them settle into their new homes and connect with peers and the community.  

NYCH’s children’s programs offer kids a safe and inclusive space to connect, express and process their emotions, stay healthy and active at home, and develop tools to build resilience. Your donation today will ensure that children continue to receive the support they need to not only survive this pandemic but thrive in their lives going forward. Thank you!/Muchas Gracias!   


Newcomers and their families face numerous barriers to starting their new lives here in Canada. Your kindness will create opportunities for them to settle successfully, thrive in their new settings and become leaders in the community.

Every year, over 17,000 people come through our doors to access the programs and services we offer. Through generous donations like yours, new immigrants and refugees will receive free, one-on-one settlement help; immigrant professionals will develop their skills for workplace success; newcomer youth will feel more welcome in their new schools; families in under-resourced neighbourhoods will be encouraged to get active and stay healthy.

All funds raised by NYCH through the 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon will support innovative children, youth, and family programs – providing opportunities for residents in northwest Toronto to gain confidence, build skills, and lead positive change in their neighbourhoods.
