Neighbourhood Champion: Danny Connelly

Danny Connelly

Hey my name is Danny. Really excited to be apart of this race to support the Seed by Seed Campaign. I have been running all my life and super excited to run downtown Toronto and experience that electrifying crowed on bay street as you cross the finish line. There is not a better feeling than sprinting that last 200 metres after a long race.

Neighbourhood Charity & Sponsoring Group:
Seed by Seed

We believe that by fostering a healthy relationship with food, we have the power to address the most pressing social justice issues of our time. Seed by Seed strives to strengthen the relationship between schools, communities and local sustainable food initiatives. We are a non-profit organization and educational partner that offers speeches and action focused workshops that empower youth and their communities to reconnect with their food and create positive change. Our goals are to encourage healthy eating, to support local farming and to understand the power of the consumer. Ultimately we want to reshape our food system to reflect our values: healthy people, healthy communities, healthy world.
