Going the Distance for Pets in Need

| October 7, 2022

It’s that time of the year! The 2022 TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon is happening in October and Toronto Humane Society runners are lacing up for the race.  

Virtual and In-Person Options

Virtual participants can pick any date between October 1st – October 31st to participate virtually. They can pick their own scenic locations – the park, along lakeshore, in your own neighbourhood – and run or walk at their own pace. Plus, virtual runners have the option to split up their race in several days or accomplish it all at once.  

October 16th is the big date for those ready to run through the city with an audience cheering you on. Click here for more details on the in-person marathon 

With the flexibility of a virtual race, we hope that you can participate, recruit friends and family, and raise much needed funds for pets in need at Toronto Humane Society. All proceeds go towards our programs, services, and Improving the Lives of Animals. 

If you’re interested in participating, register ASAP because spots are limited.  

How to Register

As soon as you register, create a fundraising page, and select Toronto Humane Society as your charity. Before sending it out to your network, you can customize your page with photos and a few lines about why you’re going the distance for pets in need.
