Programs And Activities

Through the efforts of its volunteers, YURA offers a number of events and activities for members, and their spouses/partners, throughout the year.

YURA Showcase and Sale, held each November on the York campus, which provides members with an opportunity to show off their hobbies or small business activities.

Theatre trips occur in the spring and fall to the Stratford and Shaw Drama Festivals.

A group of up to twenty of our members walk or run 5 km in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Charity Challenge each October.  In 2019, YURA walkers and runners raised more than $11,800 for graduate scholarships at York.

YURA members receive detailed information by electronic mail and/or postal services.

Past excursions have included: guided walks about historic areas of Toronto, bird-watching excursions a steamboat ride and luncheon on Lake Muskoka, a visit to a garden centre in southern Ontario, group visits to galleries, museums or archives, and other activities of general interest.
