The Toronto Challenge is an annual fundraising race organized by Toronto Long-Term Care Homes & Services. It is a family event that raises money for community agencies that improve the quality of life for older adults. This year’s race will take place on Sunday, June 12, 2016, starting at 9:30 a.m. at Metro Hall, 55 John Street.

What are Caring Clowns?

Since 2009, Programs for 50+ at Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education has provided training and practice for Caring Clowns. In this unique hands-on program, older adult students learn clowning techniques to volunteer in long-term care facilities for older adults with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
