2007 Terry Fox Run in High Park

Right off the bat, I want to thank you guys.  Another $35 was donated last night which means as of this minute I've raised $600 in online pledges and another $70 offline.  When I set my target at $500 I didn't think I'd make it, so to exceed it by $170 is pretty sweet.  Pledges ranged from $5 to $104, and to quote Terry Fox in 1980, "If you've given a dollar, you are part of the Marathon of Hope."

I ran my local Terry Fox Run, which was through High Park.  I stretched alongside our MP Peggy Nash and MPP Cheri DiNovo and heard them both speak before Mayor David Miller said a few words and cut the ribbon.  The route was only 4.5k which I would have ran, but I was joined by my mom, brother and sister-in-law, so I ended up walking the Terry Fox Run with them.

It was a lot of fun and it felt good to raise $670 for the cause.  Even though the run itself is over, I'm still accepting pledges, so it's not too late for you to be a part of the 2007 Marathon of Hope.  Click on over here, whip out the credit card and chip in a buck or two.  Here's the obligatory photoset from my morning in High Park participating in the 2007 Terry Fox Run.
