The Event

Are you ready for the best weekend of the year/your life?

An adventure race like no other is taking place in Toronto on November 18-19. Picture cocktails, celebrities, and team-based challenges so “off the hook” that your friends wouldn’t believe you — if you weren’t Instagramming it in their faces all weekend.

This urban race benefits a far more important medical race already being run by the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine and a squad of unsung heroes known as stem cells.

Here’s the beauty of these two races:

  1. You get to have serious FUN
  2. The McEwen Centre gets serious FUNDS to accelerate its groundbreaking work developing treatments and cures for devastating medical conditions like diabetes, heart and lung disease, spinal cord injuries and diseases of the blood.
