The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon is being held on Sunday October 21, 2018, so mark your calendars! We’d love to have you join Team AO York for a fun and easy 5 km walk/run.

This is such a fun event – get involved and make a difference! We’re completing the 5 km walk/run as a team, raising money to help our chapter provide programs and services for people with autism, their families and loved ones in York Region.  Scotiabank covers all the fees associated with online fundraising, so 100% of the funds you raise will go directly to AO York.

Last year we raised $8,513, and used the funds for programs and activities serving our community and their families across York Region.  Longtime chapter volunteer Jenny Donnell will be leading the team again this year and she’s set our team goal at $10,000.
