Hope for Children at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

On October 16th the Hope for Children team laced up their sneakers and ran or walked to raise more than $15,000 to help support Hope for Children’s many programs, including scholarships and emergency funds for families and youth in need.

Members of the team participated in both the 5K and half-marathon – running or walking along the Lakeshore and other areas of the downtown core. In addition, Hope for Children hosted a water station at Parliament and Front where 30 students from Bishop Strachan School and Upper Canada College sported Hope for Children t-shirts as they cheered on the participants and made sure everyone stayed hydrated. It was a great opportunity to raise spirits and awareness at the same time.

A fun day was had by all and much-needed funds were raised. Thanks to everyone who came out to participate or who donated to one of our team members – we couldn’t have done it without you!
