Fred Victor Centre

Fred Victor Centre

Fred Victor is a non-profit organization providing accessible and innovative housing, shelter and services for people who are experiencing homelessness and poverty. We have been making a positive difference in the lives of men, women and children in Toronto in our 10 city-wide locations for over 118 years. This October 16 we will be running/walking to as Fred Victor's team to help us to continue to make a positive difference. Join us in building our team and raising dollars for our work in the Scotiabank Run.

Why run with us:

We know raising dollars to support Fred Victor's work and keeping fit are incentives but we have more to tempt you to join the Fred Victor Team:

The first 10 runners to sign up for the run will receive a free entry. We ask that every runner raise $250 for the race to participate. The top 3 fundraisers will receive prizes valued at a total of $1,000! It pays to raise money! We will give you more information on the fabulous prizes as the race gets closer.

The fastest 5k and half marathon runner in categories of age will win prizes: 0-24, 25-39, 40 +
