Congratulations, Linda!

The SHRC’s Youth Outreach Coordinator, Linda Owusu, ran all the way up the CN Tower to raise money for the United Way. She has the t-shirt to prove it. As a United Way agency, we’re excited to be taking part in their annual campaign and all the work they do. Thanks to Linda for representing the SHRC up all of those flights of stairs!


Thanks for your support!


The Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon’s 5K Charity Challenge was a huge success for the SHRC. It was a beautiful morning, we had a great group of board, staff and family members out on the course, and we surpassed our fundraising goal. So thank you to all of our sponsors who made this possible.

For many on our team, it was our first time doing a 5K race. And what was so amazing–and several members on our time commented on this–was how much easier it was to run with a group of people than it had been training for the race alone. Learning how to run is so analogous to learning how to incorporate healthy activities into our lives, and it’s always easier with the support of a group of peers.

We’re looking forward to next year’s!
