Terry Fox Run 2014 - Mooredale Group

Terry Fox Run 2014 – Mooredale Group

 

5. Since the early 1970s, Tri Delta’s chosen philanthropy has been Children’s Cancer Charities. The Terry Fox Run allows us to support this cause in a Canadian context.

4. The Terry Fox Run is open to everyone! It is one of the only charitable runs that requires no entry fee or minimum donation amount. Also, participants can choose from different sites and distances, and many of the locations are wheelchair accessible.

3. Last year, our fundraising goal was $500, and we almost doubled it! Please help us to surpass $1000 this year.

2. For the 35th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope, The Terry Fox Foundation is attempting to raise $1 per Canadian or roughly $35 million. We can help make that goal a reality!

1. Supporting our team is easy!

Sign up online to participate with your Tri Delta sisters at the Mooredale location (Rosedale Station). As a group, we will be walking 5 km, but you’re free to walk, run, cycle or rollerblade 2.5, 5 or 10 km. Family and friends are welcome.

If Mooredale isn’t convenient for you, you can still join our team, completing the run at another location. In 2014, four of our members chose to complete the 10 km run at High Park.

And if you’re unable to participate, you can still sponsor our team or a particular team member. To join or to donate, check out http://www.terryfox.ca/torontotridelta for details!

On Saturday, February 11 from 1PM to 3PM, The Toronto Area Alumnae Panhellenic (TAAP) is hosting an Item Donation Day in support of New Circles (www.newcircles.ca). New Circles is a local not-for-profit community support agency that strives to help the City of Toronto, with a focus on those residing in the Flemingdon Park, Thorncliffe Park, and Victoria Village communities. Their primary service is a clothing program which provides new and gently used clothing for men, women and children. Towels and bedding for all mattress sizes are also urgently needed.

New Circles also collects formal wear for boys and girls with their Prom Boutique program. The dresses, suits and accessories are available to local students in need. This special program allows students to select outfits at no cost – they are not inhibited from attending a milestone event.

This is a great way to get a head start on spring cleaning and meet alumnae from all different panhellenic sororities!

This event will be hosted at the Gamma Phi Beta house, 26 Madison Avenue. The nearest intersection is Spadina and Bloor. The nearest subway stop is Spadina. Parking is available at a Green P located on Spadina just north of Bloor.

Calling all Warriors for the 2012 Warrior Dash!

Have you ever wanted to run a 5k obstacle course? Climbing over walls, getting tangled in ropes and jumping over fire?
What a great way to test your limits, right?! Think we made this up?

If this sounds like the kind of challenge you are up to then the DDD Toronto Alumnae Chapter wants to recruit you to be a Warrior! This year’s Warrior Dash is at the Horseshoe Resort and is being held on July 21st.

And why is the Toronto Alumnae Chapter asking for your support in this grueling task? Because this isn’t just any competition – it’s a philanthropy event for none other than St.Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Push yourself to your limits and help find a cure for pediatric cancers!

For more information check out the website: http://warriordash.com/register2012_ontario.php

If you would like to join the team of our yet to be named Warriors or have questions please contact Carmelina Macario by replying to this notice.
