TORONTO, November 1, 2013
Friends of High Park Zoo on behalf of the neighbourhood of Swansea-Bloor West Village-High Park was pleased to host a Neighbourhood Cheering Section for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sunday October 20, 2013. This was followed up by a raffle at our 120th Birthday Party on Sunday October 27, 2013.

The marathon, our cheering section and subsequent raffle were outstanding successes. We would like to thank the hundreds who turned out to cheer on the runners, our volunteers, our sponsors and supporters (listed below), our entertainment and our marathon champions. In addition to raising awareness and support for High Park Zoo, we raised thousands of dollars for High Park Zoo. bThe community came out in full support which was just wonderful,b says Simone Stock, vice-chair of Friends of High Park Zoo board and NCE3 Cheering Section lead organizer. bWe really had a ball. I can’t wait to start planning next year event!

We invite everyone to join us in cheering runners at the 2014 Scotiabank Marathon to be held on October 19, 2014. Bring the family down to Ellis Ave. & Lakeshore Blvd., at the 13K mark and cheer on more than 25,000 runners as they race through our neighbourhood. There will be free entertainment, including singers, dancers and a DJ, and refreshments. For sponsors, this is a great way to connect with the residents of Swansea-Bloor West-High Park.
