Saturday September 24th, 2016 marked the inaugural Canadian Tire Brave T.O. in support of The Scarborough Hospital. Participants competed in a five-kilometer obstacle course that was inspired by the training regimens faced by Toronto’s police, fire and paramedics.The event brought together members of the community, volunteers, first responders and racers for a day of fun for the whole family.
Many sponsors supported this worthwhile cause including Canadian Tire, RE/MAX Community Realty, No Frills, Scotiabank and many others. Brave T.O. was a demonstration of a great landmark event for Scarborough as The Scarborough Hospital General and Birchmount campus prepare for the merge with the Rouge Valley Health System Centenary site on November 1st, 2016.
The race begins at the steps of University of Toronto, Scarborough campus and runs at the backyard of the Centenary site. Bringing the two hospitals together will help to streamline services and give the community a stronger future in healthcare in Scarborough. Next year’s Brave T.O. is already scheduled for September 30th, 2017.
