For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

Our story…

Carefirst Foundation, established in 2006, is committed to fundraise for Carefirst Seniors & Community Services and other organizations with similar objectives; to provide stable and quality community services to those in need. Carefirst Seniors serves over 20,000 clients each year, including seniors, physically disabled with the support of 500 staff members, and a pool of 1,200 active volunteers. Carefirst’s commitment to serve the community is based on the belief that "care" for our clients comes "first." Meeting their needs is our primary concern and focus. Our mission is to ensure seniors and others in need of services, living in Greater Toronto Area and surrounding areas, enjoy a high quality of life in their communities. We strive to maximize their well-being through a range of social, health care and supportive services planned and delivered through an integrated model of care. We will ensure that a comprehensive range of services are delivered by an effective team of professionals and volunteers.


Proceeds raised from the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon virtual race will support Carefirst Seniors’ Capital Project – the Carefirst Campus of Care.  This proposed state-of-the-art multi-disciplinary centre, located at 9893 Lesile Street in Richmond Hill, combines a 120-bed long-term care home with a community hub that offers integrated social, health-care and supportive services. Our project will enhance access to a wide range of services for local residents and tackle the shortage of long-term care beds in York Region and adjacent areas.

Your donation will help: 

  • Seniors – To promote and expand our services, including long-term care, medical-care, home care, transportation, Chronic Disease Management and Wellness Programs, etc.
  • Diverse communities  – To provide culturally appropriate social and health services in various languages.
  • Immigrants/New residents  - To support their integration into Canadian society and foster growth in their local communities by facilitating social, recreational, information and referral services.
  • Youth  – To promote social awareness among youth and engage  learning and volunteering opportunities.
