Mayor David Miller will don his referee shirt and whistle to keep the peace between hockey legend Doug Gilmour, who will challenge 73-year-old Richard Graves at the launch of the Toronto Challenge, presented by and Toronto Homes for the Aged. Also helping to launch this event, which features 1k and 5k walks and the 5k run, will be running guru John Stanton, president of The Running Room.

Date: Thursday, May 11
Time: 10:30 a.m.

Graves won last year’s head-to-head competition with Gilmour, and Gilmour is vowing to get even at this year’s event. Each will have a cheering section on-hand to support Gilmour vs. Graves, Round Two.

The Toronto Challenge attracts over 2,000 participants and is expected to raise over $500,000 in support of residents in Toronto Homes for the Aged and organizations serving seniors across Toronto. It offers people of all ages a way to celebrate diversity, celebrate seniors, and this year, to celebrate 15 years as one of Toronto’s leading family events.
