Let's Move Willowdale
On October 2nd 2021, NeighbourLink participated in Ride For Refuge to call attention to the needs of the most vulnerable in our community and support the work that we're doing.
Neighbours walked, ran, rode bikes to raise funds and move the dial on poverty and social isolation!
While we couldn't host a large event due to the pandemic members of our Let's Move Willowdale Team did their activities on their own throughout the neighbourhood! This included DUCA Credit Union team walking through the neighbourhood to fundraise!
Our friends at the local running group We Run North York participated in the event as well! They ran 5km, 12km and 24km heart shaped routes throughout Willowdale! You can find the routes below! Special thanks to Joyce Law for organizing this and creating the routes! Follow them on Instagram @werunnorthyork to join the group!
Our local F45 North York, located on the second floor of Empress Walk also supported us in this event! Sean Heffernan and the other coaches led a boot camp fundraiser where all the participants donated to NeighbourLink to participate! They got their sweat on for a good cause and we are very grateful!
You can run, walk or ride wherever you'd like to for this event, but our good friends at We Run North York created a 5km and 10km heart shaped route through Willowdale that you can use!
You can download the free RunGo App and receive audio directions to help you navigate the route as you do your activity!
