“For life-long High Park area resident Charles Jewell, running has become a lifestyle.

Five years ago, he was suffering severe back pain with herniated discs when he realized he had to make some significant life changes for the sake of his health. And so he took up running. Since then, he goes for a run at least three times a week for most of the year.

He’s putting his stamina to good use by participating in the annual Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sunday, Oct. 16, as a champion runner for the High Park Zoo. The pledges he collects will specifically support the Friends of High Park Zoo’s ‘Master Plan’ to improve the animal shelters and public spaces.”
