Help Dianne raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

Once again the Refugee Support Team at Islington United Church is walking/running in the ScotiaBank event to raise money in support of our incoming refugee  individuals and families.  Our team will do our virtual walk on October 16th this year in compliance with COVID requirements.

 As we know the number of people in the world people displaced by war, and persecution due to their gender and sexual identity, race, religion or cultural membership is increasing daily.   Our team supports  newcomers for a year to assist them in adapting to life in Canada.  

Thank you for any support you can provide to our team this year.


Interested in changing the lives of others for the better in a direct and compelling way? The “Running and Walking for Refugees Team” at Islington United Church would love to have you join us. For 41 years we have sponsored refugee families and individuals worldwide. Over a 12-month period we provide a safe, secure and welcoming environment including accommodation, furnishings, clothing, food, transportation, medical care, education, employment opportunities and friendship. ALL funds raised provide support for those we sponsor. To join us or for information contact Dennis Bradley at (416) 231 – 4349 or email
