Journey to 10,000

Current $ fundraised: $10,340 / 10,000 

Ajourney of 10,000 kilometres begins with a single step—and with a fundraising goal of $10,000 in support of the SickKids Foundation, for every $1 raised, our team pledges to run 1 kilometre for a total distance of 10,000 kilometres.

Our SickKids Initiative

5–ing COVID-19: Journey to 10,000 is about going the extra mile for front-line healthcare workers who do the same for us every single day. We're all about supporting the courageous staff and patients at SickKids, who should not have to worry about any additional financial strains caused by COVID-19.

Our  Runners

From experienced runners, to hobbyists, short distance sprinters, and marathoners, here are some of the members of our team that have pledged to contribute to our 10,000 km goal this summer. Want in? See our Strava club here. Everyone is welcome!

We reached a major milestone today, hitting our 5k fundraising goal after contributions from several generous donors. To commemorate the event, our running team took part in a 5k in the morning and early afternoon. We're not stopping here though - reaching 5k was only a first step. Now, we've raised the bar to $10,000 and started our homeless shelters initiative!
