Founded by Newmarket resident, Joe Persechini, the Upper Canada Mall Easter Seals 10k is York Region’s longest running fundraiser for children and youth with physical disabilities. Over the past 35 years, this popular community event has become an indelible fixture in York Region, raising nearly $3.7 million for Easter Seals kids.
After having its home at Upper Canada Mall for the past 35 years, the event has moved to the brand new Newmarket Riverwalk Commons, located at 200 Doug Duncan Dr. in downtown Newmarket. The new race venue will provide a fun, family-friendly atmosphere, while also delivering a flat, fast and scenic run course through Fairy Lake Park and the Tom Taylor Trail system.
Whether you’re looking to set a personal best in the 10k or simply enjoy a leisurely walk with your family while raising funds for Easter Seals Ontario, we have something for everyone!
