Register today for United Way’s first-ever virtual physical challenge

Your community needs your help! Let’s GetUP and get active from November 9-22 to support people and families experiencing poverty, including those who have been impacted by the pandemic.


All you have to do is GetUP and move your body for 280 minutes (that’s the number of frontline community agencies United Way supports across the GTA). You get to pick the activity: running, jumping, skipping, dancing, biking, yoga—anything goes! It’s your chance to get your heart pumping, show some local love and raise funds for our community.


  1. Register to participate and start fundraising. Each dollar raised goes towards helping people and families experiencing #UNIGNORABLE issues, including poverty, hunger and homelessness.

  2. Join a team or start one. Ask your family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to show their local love by joining you for GetUP 2020.

  3. Going solo? That works too! Ask your community to show their local love by contributing to your fundraising campaign.

  4. Make GetUP your own. How you get your 280 minutes in is up to you! You can do it all at once, commit to 40 minutes a day for seven days or spread the challenge out over two weeks by doing 20 minutes a day. You can even share your minutes with a friend or colleague by asking them to register too!

What are you waiting for? Register for GetUP today!
