This year, the Canadian Geriatrics Society is taking our annual fun run virtual and making it a week-long event to Get Active! 

We want participants to unite across the country and join us from May 16 to May 22 in getting active by participating in an activity of your choice in support of the Canadian Geriatrics Society Scholarship Foundation! You can run, walk, bike, do yoga, or any other activity that gets you moving indoors and/or outdoors! Share your progress by using #CGSturns40 on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Follow @CanGeriSoc on social media to keep updated on everyone’s Get Active Week achievements!

Challenge your colleagues to Get Active too! You can join one of this year's teams (East Coast, West Coast or Everything in Between), create your own team, or participate as an individual. All funds raised will support the CGS Scholarship Foundation. Whether you get active or donate, your support makes a difference in the life of older adults across Canada.

Our goal this year is to raise $10,000! Can we make this our best year? Let’s lace up and find out!


  1. Register for $35 and receive your Get Active Week fundraising package.
  2. Get the word out that you are participating in Get Active Week and get fundraising!
  3. Between May 16th and May 22nd, Get Active your way and snap some pictures!
  4. Share your photos using #CGSturns40 on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
  5. Photos will be featured at the 2021 ASM to celebrate everyone’s contribution to the Scholarship Foundation.

The most successful fundraiser will be awarded with a complimentary two-night stay at the Westin Harbour Castle, which can be used during the 2022 CGS ASM in Toronto!


The CGS is committed to improving the care of older adults and has decided, through its Foundation, to promote interest amongst Medical Students in the practice of Geriatrics. Your donation will help the CGS Scholarship Foundation to achieve this objective.
