This past weekend I got to volunteer at Cadillac Fairview’s annual walk/run in support of POGO (Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario). I was there as the photographer, and though Tito had come just to keep me company he ended up spontaneously donning a red volunteer shirt and working very hard that morning – is that sweet or what?
The weather started out pretty iffy and graduated to rain that was torrential by the time we left the park, but that didn’t stop 600 folks and countless volunteers and support staff from coming out in support of a great cause. Everyone had a wonderful time, despite the rain and I wanted to share some pics here!
Cadets from the Metro Toronto Police force came out to help organize the run.
Lots of amazing families came out to run or walk together and support each other.
At 10 am sharp the race was on.
Even doggies were running in support of POGO =o)
In total, $200,000 was raised
And Tito, though soaking wet, stayed out til the very end of the race to congratulate the last runners as they came in. Look at that face!
We had an amazing day and have already committed to shooting the run next year!
