Inspired by the city’s courageous first-responders, the obstacle course provided participants with an opportunity to tackle the real-life physical challenges faced by Toronto’s police, paramedics and firefighters during training and on the street.

These included Tire-Carry, Wall-Clear, Tunnel Crawl, Confidence Maze and Hose Carry.

Nearly $50,000 was raised from the event

Proceeds from the Challenge will go to The Scarborough Hospital Foundation to support innovative patient care and purchase support items.
