Toronto Challenge…We Did It!

Home / Latest News / Toronto Challenge…We Did It!

Many thanks to everyone who supported our Toronto Challenge Walk4Seniors Campaign! We had a great team of staff, volunteers and family members who represented ESS during the walk on Sunday, June 10th.  Scroll down to see photos from the walk.

There was a lot of work that went on behind the scenes leading up to the event. Thank you to the staff who helped plan and coordinate our ESS team and fundraising campaign and MANY thanks to everyone who made a donation and pledge in support of our campaign and walkers. We couldn’t have done it without you! Special thanks to the teams at First Health Group Wellness Centre (Etobicoke Clinic) and Complete Balance Health who helped support our fundraising efforts by offering mini-massages onsite in exchange for a donation towards our campaign.  As well, thank you to Moksha Yoga Etobicoke for donating two, one month unlimited yoga passes that were used as prizes in our campaign raffle. It’s wonderful to work with great local businesses that are so supportive and community-minded. 

We are thrilled to announce that we more than doubled our fundraising goal and, with your help, raised over $5,500 towards our programs and services supporting seniors and caregivers in our community. We are so pleased with these results. Thank you!

Below are some photos taken over the course of our campaign; enjoy!

We designated every Wednesday during the campaign, a “Wellness Wednesday” where we would participate in a wellness activity together as a group and take a walk during our lunch break to get ready for the Toronto Challenge.
