Live music! Join the Cabbagetown Youth cheering squad and help raise extra funds for the Cabbagetown Youth Centre.
I've taken up running to put some direction to my normal course of action: running around in circles. Hailing from the thriving metropolis of Cottam, Ontario (population: 300), you'll note that I'm prone to things like puns, holding doors open for people, laughing easily, and anything that glitters.
I often waste too much time thinking about politics and my next running route.
I currently have over a dozen marathons under my belt and I'm looking forward to running the 42.2km this Fall for the Cabbagetown Youth Centre.
The staff and volunteers at the Cabbagetown Youth Centre (CYC) make the impossible possible, everyday!
Founded as the Cabbage Boxing Club in 1972, the CYC began providing social programs for Youth in Toronto's eastern, inner city core. Perhaps its most-famous graduate is 1984 Olympic, Light Middleweight Silver Medallist, Shawn O'Sullivan.
Developed in response to a need for community resources and preventative services, CYC programs form the largest community facility available to a diverse and under-serviced population.
Today the CYC has evolved and provides a full range of recreational, social and skill development programs, continuing to identify and respond to the unique and changing needs of the communities it serves. The CYC offers programs for all ages, from pre-school to seniors, that build leadership skills and promote self-esteem and positive family relations.
The CYC provides a variety of services and programs from three locations and operates summer residential and day camps.
HELP us raise pledges on our MARATHON CHAMPIONS, and WIN the Neighbourhood Challenge for Cabbagetown — every $$ will go to sustain our programs!
