TORONTO CHALLENGE WALK/RUN FOR LABDARA will take place on Sunday, June 10th starting at 9:30AM from Nathan Philips Square. Toronto Challenge is organized by the City of Toronto and aims to support charitable agencies and organizations providing long-term care and services for seniors in our city.
For TEAM LABDARA, the purpose of this year’s walk/run is to raise funds to replace the resident outdoor chairs on the second and third floor balconies with newer and sturdier seating to match the new chairs in the portico area. One chair costs around $500 (after taxes). Our goal is to raise $5,000 this year.
Team LABDARA is being organized by our Activation Department staff and Volunteer Co-ordinator, Nerijus Augutis and Board Director Julija Simonelis. Registration and pledge forms are now available. There is a registration fee of $20 for adults and $10 for Children and Seniors. Come sign up to walk or run the 1km or 5km routes or make a donation to support Team Labdara by contacting Nerijus at: LabdaraVolunteering@gmail.com or by leaving a voicemail message at: 416-232-2112 ext 413.
No one is too young or too old to participate! Over the past couple of years Team Labdara’s walkers ranged from our youngest walkers - babies in strollers to our eldest walkers - over 82 yrs. of age! The bulk of our runners and walkers have been our community Lithuanian youth and their friends - a wonderful way to WALK FOR GRANDMA or GRANDPA!!!
