Join a rally in a Toronto ravine for North York General Hospital

Streets of Toronto x North York General Hospital

Pull up your socks and lace up your running shoes – it’s time for Rally in the Ravine, presented by Concord, in support of North York General Hospital! The event on Oct. 14 will feature a 1 km, 5 km and 10 km run and a kids mini rally, plus great food, vendors and exciting on-site activities.

For the first time ever, the event will take place outside the hospital grounds — at G. Ross Lord Park at Dufferin Avenue and Finch Avenue West — and will bring back all the fun, fresh air and family time that people love.  At the center of it all are the runners, walkers, donors and sponsors who are rallying their support to celebrate North York General Hospital and its incredible staff who go above and beyond every day to provide the kind of care everyone deserves.

Funds will support mental health and orthopaedic care as part of the Gulshan & Pyarali G. Nanji Orthopaedic Centre. For presenting sponsor Concord, this is an event that renews their support each year:

“All of us at Concord are proud to support North York General through this year’s Rally in the Ravine. Over the past five years we have been the presenting sponsor of this event and we can’t wait to hit the route with Team Concord,” states Isaac Chan, vice president of sales at Concord. 

The 10 km and 5 km runs offer a chip timed option for those in the competitive spirit, along with an untimed run/walk option for those more interested in going at their own pace in a group or with family and friends. The mini rally for kids will include a fun obstacle course after the 1 km run/walk. Medals will be awarded to all participants!

Arrive after 7:30 a.m. for registration — the event kicks off at 8:45 a.m. with opening ceremonies and a warm-up before the run officially begins at 9 a.m.

Join us with your family and friends on Oct. 14 at Rally in the Ravine presented by Concord. To register, visit www.rallyintheravine.ca.
