This is Marvin Gord! He’s led an extraordinary life. Marvin is 99 years old and walks five kilometres every day around his neighbourhood. Marvin will celebrate his 100th Birthday on Dec. 31, 2020, at the turn of the calendar year.
Between now and his birthday, Marvin is on a mission to walk 1 MILLION STEPS and raise $1 MILLION (or more!) for Baycrest's SOS Campaign, which funds critical protective measures and medical equipment to safeguard residents, patients, and staff who deliver care; and equipment for clinicians to treat patients via telemedicine, and for patients and residents to connect with families.
Every dollar you donate will be one more step Marvin takes in his mission to 1 million steps ($25 = 25 steps, $100 = 100 steps, etc.). Help Marvin get to a million steps!
You can walk “alongside” Marvin too! Take a virtual walk with Marvin in any way you like. Get on a treadmill, an elliptical machine, or go for a walk around your neighbourhood.
