Help Ori raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

On September 27th, I celebrated 15 years of sobriety.

JACS Toronto played a major role in helping me get sober as they were there for me when I was not able to be there for myself. When my family did not know where else to go, when stigma reared its ugly head, and they did not know who was safe to talk to about the fact that they had a son addicted to drugs, alcohol and gambling, they called JACS and for that, I am grateful. Without my family and without JACS, I'd probably be dead.

8  years ago I started working at JACS and 3 years ago I took over as President and CEO of JACS Toronto, giving back to the coimmunity that gave me a second chance at life.

I ask that you please consider supporting JACS so that no one who needs help ever needs to be turned away for financial reasons.

Please help me reach my BONUS goal of $30,000, one dollar (or more) at a time, representing my 15 years of sobriety, one day at a time (x2)!!!

All my best,



Join us in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon and help us help those in need. All funds raised will go directly to supporting JACS programming.
