Mission: Empower everyone to improve lives and build strong communities.
We love where we live, but issues like food insecurity, social isolation and mental health are hurting our communities.
Your generosity powers United Way’s work in the Durham Region. It allows us to tackle persistent, #UNIGNORABLE issues that are preventing far too many individuals and families from getting ahead.
When you show your local love for community, you’re helping create pathways out of poverty so that everyone can thrive.
The United Way invests in programs that have a wide range of impact. These programs support thousands of local residents, helping them when they need it the most.

Riding a bike has been well established as a great way to get, stay, or promote your physical and mental well being. Our plans are underway for the 2021 version and will offer course options which will present challenges re distance and climbing. We will of course be mindful of all Provincial and local health guidelines.
Working together in a unified and coordinated fashion helps to build a better community from which we all benefit.
