Special Events

The safety, health and well-being of our event participants and guests is our top priority. With the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 risk in our community, we have made the necessary decision to defer all our spring events until later this year. We will continue to provide updates and information as it becomes available. Check back soon.

Visit Mackenzie Health’s website to get the latest information on COVID-19.

Planning for our gala, currently scheduled for November 7, continues while we monitor this evolving situation.

UniversalCare Strides for Stroke

UniversalCare Strides for Stroke is a community fundraiser and 5K run/walk supporting enhanced patient care at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital, the future Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital and the York Region District Stroke Centre Program at Mackenzie Health.

Every year, past and present patients, doctors, nurses, staff, volunteers and community members come together to stride through the streets of Richmond Hill and Vaughan to celebrate their fundraising efforts that will have a direct impact on patients and families in our community.

Since 2006, Strides for Stroke has raised just over $2 million, helping to fund education programs, technology upgrades and lifesaving equipment for those affected by stroke. We’re so grateful for the ongoing support and commitment of our community. 

Ride for Health

Ride for Health, presented by CIBC, is an exclusive 25/60/100K cycling and fundraising event in support of Mackenzie Health.

The ride begins at the Copper Creek Golf Club and continues through a picturesque route in York Region. Plus, with a gourmet breakfast, premier rest stations and an exciting post-event celebration, Ride for Health is sure to be a memorable day.

Last year, thanks to our supporters, Ride for Health raised a record-breaking $360,000. And since the event’s inception in 2015, it has raised an incredible $1 million towards lifesaving equipment, technology advancements and other critical hospital upgrades.

Tee Off for Health

Mackenzie Health Foundation’s 25th annual Tee Off for Health, previously known as the Proud Partners Classic, is an exclusive golf and fundraising event to benefit Mackenzie Health.

Taking place at Eagles Nest Golf Club, the tournament promises to be an unforgettable day, with a variety of fun on-course activities, delectable tasting stations, a gourmet lunch and dinner, live and silent auctions, inspiring speakers, great prizes and more.

Since 1995, our golf event has raised more than $2.7 million towards critical health care programs and urgently-needed equipment. Thanks to the ongoing generosity of our community, we can continue to provide the ultimate in health care to patients and families, close to home.
