Polo For Heart, one of Canada’s most unique equestrian sporting events, offers spectators an opportunity to watch thoroughbred polo ponies and players from Argentina, United States and Canada engage in what has long been called “sport of kings”. This year Polo For Heart will be held at the Toronto Polo Club in Richmond Hill at 13401 Leslie Street on June 19, 20 and 21.
Now entering its 36th year, Polo For Heart has been a special event on many social calendars as a fascinating and successful fund raiser for heart and stroke related charities. Proceeds from this year’s Polo For Heart will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and the Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket. Polo For Heart has raised more than $6 million for charity since its inception three and half decades ago.
Each day of the event attendees will be treated to two international polo matches, a silent auction, charming boutiques and daily half time entertainment. Guests can also visit The BMO Kids Zone and can participate in the traditional champagne divot stomp, polo picnics and the best hat contests.
Buy a corporate table and entertain your friends and/or clients. General admission to Polo For Heart is only $20; children under 12 are free.

We decided that we needed to keep his memory alive as well as awareness. This has also been a part of our journey and healing experience and to help other families. My sister thought it would be a great idea to do a lemonade stand and raise money for lymphoma Canada. We’ve had bake sales, DJ company come out, ice cone machine, sold items from lymphoma Canada and of course sold lots of lemonade. Every year it has been a big success. We have raised thousands of dollars for this cause This will be our 5th annual lemonade stand

*YMCA Healthy Kids Day (Barrie) (FREE)
10am
YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka
22 Grove Street West
Barrie, ON

YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka Opens Its Doors for Healthy Kids Day
A free community event to help families embrace healthy habits
On June 7, 2015, the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka will join YMCAs across Canada in hosting the YMCA Healthy Kids Day. Designed to help kids and families embrace healthy habits that can become a lifelong practice, this free community event will focus on fun and engaging activities, practical information and simple ways to be healthier in spirit, mind and body.
Across Canada, most children do not meet recommended levels of daily physical activity. Rising rates of obesity and related chronic disease tell us that getting kids active should be a top priority for parents, schools, and all Canadians. “Our children’s health is very important to us. The Y is there to support families – it can be a challenge for parents to do it on their own,” says Karen Pulla, Vice President of Health, Wellness & Community Recreation Programs, YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka. “On June 7th, YMCAs across Canada are opening their doors for free to the community to celebrate Healthy Kids Day. It’s a chance for parents to connect, learn about healthy habits, and get the whole family active together under one roof.”
Although the YMCA models and incorporates healthy practices into its programs and activities for children and youth year round, YMCA Healthy Kids Day places special emphasis on teaching children, youth and their families about exploring healthy living habits that will make a difference throughout the year.
The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka will be hosting YMCA Healthy Kids Day on June 7th throughout Simcoe County and the District of Muskoka. All activities are free to the community, unless otherwise indicated.
FREE community activities include:
The Barrie YMCA will feature Family Yoga, Family Swim, craft & science stations, Family Bootcamp and more!
