Toronto Charity Runs 2017

When you want to feel the punishment of a long distance runner and help other people at the same time, then I would suggest you sign up for a charity run. Toronto always has several runs going on throughout the year, some short and some that probably seem like they go on forever. You can check some of my favourite events to photograph with Walk a Mile In Her Shoes and Colour Me Rad events.
