The 2019 Toronto Challenge is coming up on Sunday, June 9th! CORE is proud to be a community partner of the Toronto Challenge and has participated for many years. We need your support to make 2019 our most successful fundraising year yet!

CORE supports adults with developmental disabilities or dual diagnoses to engage in lifelong learning activities that encourage self-determination and social inclusion. Many CORE participants are seniors and older adults, and CORE strives to address their unique and changing needs. CORE provides daily hot lunches to senior participants with the support of Second Harvest donations, which enables regular access to nutritious food.  Physical activity groups help to maintain strength and mobility. Life-skills groups support participants to maintain their independence. Critically, the recreational and community-based programs at CORE facilitate ongoing social connection, which is integral to the process of healthy aging. Seniors and older adults are an important part of the CORE community, and we are committed to continuously evolving to meet their needs. 

The Toronto Challenge is an excellent fundraising opportunity, as all of the costs involved in organizing and running the event are generously provided by sponsors such as Monster Mortgage. 

You can help in the following ways:

1. Collect pledges and join us (family and friends are welcome!) on Sunday, June 9th to participate in the 1K walk, 5K walk, or 5K run. The majority of the CORE team will be participating in the 5K walk together. For more information on how to participate, please visit the official Toronto Challenge website

2. If you are unable to join us on June 9th, you can participate by collecting pledges from your family members, friends, co-workers, neighbours, and contacts on behalf of CORE participants who will be walking or running in the event.

3. Make a personal donation online using the form below or via the CORE website.

A CORE charitable tax receipt (Charitable Registration # 11887 1177 RR0001) will be mailed to individual donors who pledge $10.00 or more. 

Thank you in advance for all of your support in making CORE’s participation in the 2019 Toronto Challenge a huge success!  Let’s make this the best year yet!!
