By running, walking or wheeling the Achilles St. Patrick's Day Race

Sunday, March 17 | 10:30 A.M. | Steam Whistle Brewery

For the fourth year in a row, our team is thrilled to be participating in the Annual Achilles St. Patrick's Day Races. Join West Park Healthcare Centre staff, patients and other members of the West Park in Motion team for a festive fun filled morning and experience the excitement of running, walking or wheeling through the heart of downtown Toronto while raising money for a great cause – West Park!

New for 2019, Achilles Canada has added a new 10K run for those looking for a challenge and a new 1K run for those wanting to bring their kids. You can also sign up to participate in the traditional 5K event. Click on the Register button below to navigate to the Achilles Canada registration website.

Achilles Registration Fee: $40 + HST and applicable fees
West Park patients, please register through Vanessa at vanessa.ciufo@westpark.org. All team members who register to participate and raise funds will receive a race kit which includes a t-shirt.

This year’s race has a new team and a new name – West Park in Motion. The race is open to anyone to join, whether running or wheeling! 

Sponsor a participant or make a general donation to the team. All proceeds will support West Park’s Amputee Rehabilitation Service and other top priorities for enhanced patient care at West Park Healthcare Centre.

You can give offline too! Here’s how:

Donate directly to a participant with cash or cheque. The participant you’re sponsoring will complete an offline fundraising form and submit the funds to West Park Foundation. For any donations of $10 or more, a tax receipt will be issued to you after the event.
