On December 14th, 2019, the Toronto Santa Speedo Run will once again be on display, giving the Yorkville area a little unexpected fashion show. Registration begins at 12pm and the race starts at 1:30pm.
What originally started as a whimsical idea conjured up in a mild fit of dementia in 2005 has ended up raising an incredible $377,177 for the Toys and Games fund at SickKids. For those new to the event, it's a fun run with the only objective being to raise as much money as possible, while making complete and utter spectacles of ourselves.
Since idiocy loves company, we'd love to have you with us.
The proceeds of the run will be going to the "Toys and Games Fund" at The Hospital for Sick Children, to make any time spent there just a little more enjoyable.
Registration is FREE, but all participants are required to raise a minimum of $250.00 and will also receive an official SickKids sports buff! New this year - raise $500, and receive SickKids Warrior socks.
Becoming a SickKids Warrior means combining your love of challenge events with fundraising for SickKids. It’s a win for those kids, and the hospital that fights for them, when you fundraise on their behalf.
Raise a minimum of $200, and earn a SickKids buff to wear proudly on event day!
Raise a minimum of $500, and earn SickKids Warriors athletic socks that you can sport throughout training and on event day!
Fight for kids like Myles
Staying active is vital for cystic fibrosis patients. Myles was a SickKids cystic fibrosis patient when he received his first double lung transplant. Recently, he received his third transplant – the first in Canada. In 2015, he ran with the torch at the Toronto Pan Am Games. See just how strong you need to be to run like Myles.
