Help Sophia raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

Hello, Friends! My name is Sophia Holowaty and I am participating in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (virtual) 5K walk/run for the SEVENTH year now! This cause is very dear to me and I am thrilled to be participating again, this year on October 23, 2021. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed many challenges to us all during this time of uneasy and unpredictable unrest. Nursing homes especially are challenged due to the lack of funding to help protect our vulnerable elderly population. The Ukrainian Canadian Care Centre (UCCC) needs funds over what it receives from the government to maintain its level of care. I will be participating alongside members of the UCCC to fundraise for stronger infection control (replacement of the air conditioning system), enhancement of shower rooms, and the music therapy program. Over the last six years, I have personally seen the many improvements that could not have been made possible without your support. 

Our seniors need us now more than ever to help protect them. Every little bit counts and your generosity is greatly appreciated.


Дякую and thank you for your time and consideration; let’s do it for our seniors!!


Your support today will help save seniors’ lives!

The Ukrainian Canadian Care Centre is dedicated to serving the needs of seniors and meeting the demands of a growing senior population with care and compassion.
