Why Participate

Cardinal Walk-A-Thon

Your support this year will help us make important enhancements to the care and programs we offer our seniors, and you can designate your fundraising towards one of our three main priorities. Whether you choose to raise funds for Hoyer Ceiling Lifts (these are devices used in hospital settings and increasingly in nursing homes to eliminate manual lifting of persons with mobility constraints and ensure that they are safely transferred from one location to another with the minimum amount of discomfort for the person), more small group recreation therapy and quality of life programs for the residents of the Ukrainian Canadian Care Centre, or you choose to support the sustainability and expansion of our community recreational and social programs for seniors aging in place, you will be making a difference in the lives of seniors.

Within the past 12 years, we have come together – staff, volunteers, past and current family members of the Ukrainian Canadian Care Centre, and members of our community to show how deeply we care about our seniors; and we have done it as part of the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon . This year, we are happy to announce the beginning of our own Cardinal Walk-A-Thon for Seniors, which allows us more flexibility and the opportunity to have free registration for every participant. We are very grateful to Andrew and Jimmy Cardinal, owners of Cardinal Funeral Homes, whose generous sponsorship made the organization of our own Walk-A-Thon possible. In addition to their sponsorship, Andrew and Jimmy Cardinal will also match every donation, received in the Care Centre as part of the Walk-A-Thon Campaign, for up to a total of $25,000. This is a truly inspiring beginning of our own Cardinal Walk-A-Thon for Seniors. We owe a debt of gratitude to Andrew and Jimmy Cardinal for their generosity and foresight. Their committed support has allowed us to take our most loved annual charitable challenge, the Marathon, to a new level and provide more opportunities for participation and support from our community.“ Anna Do, Director of Development and Community Engagement.


For every $300 raised as part of your fundraising campaign, your name will be automatically entered in a draw with amazing prizes!  We will also give special prizes to the top 3 fundraisers!
