Terry Pursell
President & CEO
North York General Foundation

It is hard to believe that in 1968 we opened our doors to serve the North York community and it hasn’t stopped growing and prospering since. In this, our 49th year, North York General is getting ready to celebrate our 50th year in 2018 and we look forward to sharing milestones in the months ahead. 

As part of our ongoing efforts to recognize our extraordinary donor community, we released our Report to the Community at the end of June which featured 10 inspirational women who have all played a role in the success of our hospital. If you haven’t had a chance to read it, please check it out here. 

People give back to North York General in many ways and nowhere is this more evident than through our Third Party Events. The Foundation will be the recipient of funds raised from both the Bang & Olufsen Yorkville Run and the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. If you would like to run to support North York General or put your creative energy and time towards the health of your community, please join us or sponsor a runner today.

Our legendary Heart of Fashion, presented by BMO Financial Group, returns on May 12, 2018, with a goal of raising $1 million towards the redevelopment of our cancer care unit. If you would like to find out more about personal or corporate sponsorship, please click here – we are selling quickly!

With warm wishes for the fall,


Terry Pursell
