Photo Opportunity - Even a 98-year-old is taking the Toronto Challenge
  
Participants as old as 98 and as young as two years will be joining fellow walkers and runners in this Sunday’s Toronto Challenge, presented by Toronto Homes for the Aged and MonsterMortgage.ca.

An aerobics warm-up will get participants ready for their 1k or 5k walk and the MonsterMortgage.ca 5k run. The event features a challenge between hockey legend Doug Gilmour and 73-year-old Richard Graves, who will be joined by more than 2,000 participants, not including the many pets and even the police horses that will share in this 15th annual celebration.

This fun-filled event is expected to raise half a million dollars to enhance the lives of residents in Toronto Homes for the Aged, and also to support more than 55 community groups serving seniors across Toronto.

Date: Sunday, June 11

Key Times: Aerobics warm-up: 9 a.m.
Race Start: 9:30 a.m. sharp
Award Presentations: 10:30 a.m. (approximate)
