Fundraising Info

Whether you’re running or walking as an individual or you’ve joined the event as part of a dynamic team, we all have a part to play in ensuring we raise the most pledges possible for North York General Hospital!

We need all participants to reach out to their network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to support you and your PARTICIPATION through donations!

Use your personal fundraising page to reach out via email or social media and raise what you can in support of the amazing care that North York General provides right here in our own backyard! We have provided you pre-written messages in your Participant Centre to help with your outreach. Use ‘as is’ or edit to fit your style.

Fundraising Prizes

Prizes will be awarded to the top individual fundraiser, as well as the top fundraising teams in the following categories:

Don’t miss out on exciting prizes and (more importantly), the bragging rights of being the top fundraiser(s) in your category!

Offline Gifts

While we encourage online fundraising as your main vehicle for raising donations, we know some people like to donate in the form of cash or cheque. If this happens, please log all of those gifts on our OFFLINE DONATION FORM (downloadable here) AND ensure you enter those gifts in your Participant Centre as “offline gifts”. They will be added to your personal fundraising thermometer but not made part of the event total until the donation is received and confirmed by the Foundation.

You can mail your offline donations with accompanying form into the Foundation prior to October 5th for us to confirm at: North York General Foundation, 4001 Leslie Street, Toronto, ON M2K 1E1

You can also drop off your offline donations (with form) before noon on October 12th to our Foundation Offices at 4001 Leslie Street. We are located on the 1st Floor of the Steinberg Family Tower. After that time, please bring your offline donations with you on the day of the event. Any offline donations received on the day of the event, but not previously logged as a gift in your Participant Centre may not be counted as part of your fundraising total on event day.
