Railpath Community Run Success

Last Sunday, I joined community members at the First Railpath Community Run.

The event was a great success, with dozens of participants running and walking along the West Toronto Railpath to exercise, celebrate this public space, and raise money for a local community organization.

I am so impressed with the amazing organizers of this race, who approached my office a year ago with a great idea to hold a local community run, and who then worked hard all year to make it happen.

Congratulations to the organizers and participants for a fantastic event!

And they're off!! Good luck to all runners on the west-end railpath this morning! http://t.co/DSEHsRDs
