Love Gives Capital Campaign
Canada’s population is aging and the trend is rapidly increasing. We have more than 6 million seniors over the age of 65 now and the wait time for a Yee Hong long-term care bed can be as long as 10 years, compared to the provincial average of 152 days!
To tackle this urgent problem, Yee Hong is planning to build 3 new centres in Scarborough, Markham and Mississauga, doubling its current capacity of 805 long-term care beds to 1,605 beds. Total construction costs are estimated to be $300 million.
We need your support! The first step is to raise $80 million to get the construction of the new buildings started. Remember… Love Gives!
Peter K Kwok Hospice
In order to meet the increasing demand for palliative and end-of-life services in Scarborough and across the GTA, Yee Hong has opened the Peter K Kwok Hospice at the Yee Hong Centre – Scarborough Finch – a home setting where families can spend meaningful time with their loved one while he or she is assisted by Yee Hong’s professional caregivers.
The 34th annual Dragon Ball, the signature fundraising gala of Yee Hong Community Wellness Foundation, will return in-person on January 21, 2023. Buy your tickets now to support the senior care at four Yee Hong centres and the construction of three new long-term care homes.

Third-Party/Community Events and Campaigns
Parkinson’s disease is one of the most baffling and complex of all neurological disorders. The cause is unknown and there is no cure.
In 2017, Yee Hong Centre partnered with Dance DNA to develop the “I Can Dance” fitness program for individuals with Parkinson’s disease or other Parkinson-like illness, so that they can experience the joy and benefits of dancing.
This pilot project demonstrated encouraging results, showing a positive impact on improving patients’ motor movements and balance. It also provided a social support network, helping to reduce depression and build self-esteem.
This successful dance project has become an ongoing program since 2017. Silver Ball has been an annual fundraiser to showcase the “I Can Dance” program.
Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon
Since 2008, Yee Hong Foundation has entered a team for the annual Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Thanks to our dedicated supporters, we have always finished in the top three of charity teams that raised the most money per participant!
Please help us continue our success and donate to our 2021 team:
