Dear Potential Runners;
Learning Disabilities Association of York Region provides services to children, teenagers and adults living with a Learning Disability and their families. Did you know that 1 in 10 Canadians live with a learning disability? A Learning Disability cannot be cured. Individuals living with Learning Disabilities (LDs) focus on and develop personal strengths in order to be successful in school, work and social environments.

Without proper interventions LDs and/or ADHD can result in many negative consequences. By providing support through our programs and services the LDAYR has been able to avoid this reality for countless members of our community affected by LDs and/or ADHD and set them on a path to success. As a volunteer led, non-profit, charitable organization, none of this would be possible without the generous support of our community.
In particular, our annual fundraising committee along with our other community event each year is a major source of support for our organization and its programs and services. Not simply an event that raises funds, the Scotiabank run is a chance for our sponsors, family and friends, and members to work together and train for a goal towards raising money for a cause that is important to them.
You can help us both bring awareness to our cause and provide resources to those affected by LDs and ADHD in our community by signing up friends + family for the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon. We will gladly provide you with a tax receipt upon request and will publically recognize your generosity in our newsletter and in our website.
