FYFB Runners Return to Raise Funds in 2008 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Group Charity Challenge

Sunday September 28 2008

On Sunday, September 28, 2008, FYFB Runners will once again be lacing up their shoes and running, walking and wheeling to raise funds for the Fort York Food Bank in the annual Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Group Charity Challenge.

FYFB Runners raised more than $4,500 last year in the Charity Challenge, nearly double the amount raised in 2006 and expectations are high for our 2008 team. FYFB Runners Team Captain Shannon Puddister is excited by the enthusiasm the event has built over the past several years and is looking forward to setting a new fundraising record to support FYFB's programs.
