Interesting Facts:

We are tracking for 20,000+ runners in our 21st year and our first year running through The Beach.

Fundraising just went over $1 million. Amazing numbers!

We have 89 charities (a lot of smaller community based charities that use the money to improve their quality of life, programs (they are not all looking for the cures) and 12 Neighbourhood Cheering and Entertainment Centres who are associated with charities ie Beaches Lions Club (at Kew Gardens) is raising money for the Guide Dogs and Murphy’s Law (across from Murphy’s Law) raising money for Community Centre 55.

TEAM JAPAN is Coming to Race!

You got my email Dan but I thought I would post it here. "After 35 years of running races and several Toronto Marathons it is time to give back. I will be there."

The boys and I are around and I am sure that there has to be something that we can do...not sure how long they will last (I'm looking at Alistair), but figure that some setting up and marshalling perhaps...let me know if you can use us.
