A pretty amazing event is coming to Toronto in a couple weeks! Check out the details below for the Wheelchair Relay Challenge & stROLL!

This year’s 70s themed Wheelchair Relay Challenge & stROLL will be on September 20th at 9:00am-1:00pm at Monarch Park Stadium, Toronto. It’s an opportunity for people with and without disabilities to come together for a day of fun, new experiences and friendly competition. All proceeds will go towards helping people with spinal cord injuries rebuild their lives.

Don’t have a wheelchair? One will be provided to your team to race around the track. Prior to the relay, participants solicit pledges from corporations, family and friends to raise money for people with spinal cord injuries, with an expected minimum team total – Corporate Team: $2,000 and
Community Team: $1,000.

Why PARTICIPATE? In Ontario, at least one person sustains a spinal cord injury every day. One of the most difficult times a person can experience is immediately after an injury. Thanks to funds raised by people like you through the Wheelchair Relay Challenge and STROLL SCI Ontario is able to provide much needed customized programs and services – giving people the support they need when they need it.

Enjoy free delectable snacks and fun activations. Boogie to funkadelic tunes and dress up in your best 70s attire, with the chance to win prizes for best costume.

There are two ways to get involved:

1. Create a team of 8 and race in a wheelchair in hopes of getting to the finish line first. If you don’t have a wheelchair, we can provide you with one.

2. If racing isn’t your thing, walk, run, dance or stROLL around our 2.5 km path
