Constantine Yorkville Run: 5K Virtual Event
Over the past 10 years, the Constantine Yorkville Run has raised over 2.6 million dollars to small, local Toronto charities. This year, the goal is to reach 1,000,000!

Additionally, since the race is virtual this year, each runner will receive a Starter’s Medal – a customized sports watch to track individual run times.
