Run for Fun a Success

On Saturday, September 19th, the first ever East Scarborough Run for Fun brought 150 people out to run, walk, or bike a beautiful 5K through Morningside Park from The East Scarborough Storefront to The Valley at The University of Toronto Scarborough.  Our main goal was to activate our community with fun physical activity. The smiling faces and sea of blue and red T-shirts in this event day video  says we reached that goal!  And, you may have even seen the run on CityTV news!  People also rallied behind this event by raising $10,000!
