This past Sunday, for the 8th year in a row, we took part in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon! It was cold. It was snowing. But all participants were still in great spirits!
Our goal was to raise $15,000 in order to provide 45,000 meals to our neighbours that are hungry.
WE’RE ALMOST THERE! We’ve already exceeded $12,000!
Even though the race is over, YOU can still be a part of the team!
DON’T DELAY – Donations can only be made until the end of October so please DONATE NOW
Thank you to all our participants for getting up to race with us at 8:00 in the morning on a chilly Sunday. Your dedication will to help feed people in your community. We’d also like to extend our gratitude to the donors and sponsors for your generosity!
We were excited to be joined by many of our veteran teammates in person and spirit. Including the Fun Runners team with Peter Zissis and Chris Hilborn, who have been running with NYH for 8 years! We also had some new faces, including Executive Director Ryan Noble and Board Member Tony Cancelliere.
Our incredible teams this year were:
- Fun Runners with Peter Zissis & Chris Hilborn
- The Accidental Roamers with Anoop Chawla & Anette Chawla and team
- NYH team – Leslie, Ryan, Emma, Sophia, Tony Cancelliere & Harold Banguero and family
- Kevin Munn and family
And as always, our tradition at the race is the Treasurer of the Board (Kevin Munn) best represented our team by wearing a great costume!
