Thank you to all the runners who ran the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (STWM) on Sunday, October 14, 2012 in support of Team Daily Bread!
On Friday and Saturday at the Runner’s EXPO, Daily Bread staff and volunteers met many runners, and were able to share information about the great work Daily Bread is doing in this community. This unique opportunity would not have been possible without the support of our friends Dave Chaundry-Smart, Andre Cheuk, and Gus Alexandropoulos at Canadian Running Magazine, who allowed us to partner with them at their EXPO booth. A huge thanks to the Canadian Running Magazine team for getting the word out that people could support Team Daily Bread during the run.
Over $9000 has been raised, but pledges are still coming in. Donations for Daily Bread through Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon can be made until October 29. To make a donation, please click here.
Special thanks to our top fundraiser Daniel Iny, who raised over $4000. Daniel ran the half marathon, and placed 1328 with a time of 1:47:51!
