2018 NYSC Challenge

Choose Your Challenge – Make a Difference

NYSC Challenge is an annual event organized by North York Seniors Centre (NYSC), a not-for-profit organization, to raise funds for programs and services that help over 3,000 seniors in the North York area to stay active and stay well.

The challenge welcomes people of all ages and fitness levels, from walkers to professional runners, and everyone who wants to help and have fun. You can join as an individual or form a team.

This year’s goal is to raise $12,000 throughout June – and that is with your help. There are two challenges to choose from:

June 28th (Thursday, Rain or Shine)

1K Walk or 5K Walk/Run at 8 a.m. and starts at 21 Hendon Avenue

For those who can’t make it on the 28th, choose your own challenge, set your goal, and raise funds for NYSC.

Bike, dance, swim, walk, run, whatever!


Or do both challenges and double the fun! You can do the challenge on your own or form a team.

All money raised from this event will fund programs and services that help seniors live their best life.
