This year, Cassels Brock was proud to submit a group to run in the annual Pride and Remembrance Run, which was held on Saturday, June 30th. All proceeds were donated to two deserving LGBT charities in Toronto: The Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Youth Line and HALCO (HIV & AIDS Legal Clinic Ontario). While Participants can chose to partake in either the 5 km run or the 3 km walk, everyone in the ever competitive CBB group decided try to make it through the 5 km route.
The team met early before the 10 am start of the race to fuel up on coffee and granola donated by some of our lovely supporters. The CBB group joined forces with the contingent from U of T Law’s “Out in Law” organization.
This year, the race stretched from Church and Wellesley to Queen’s Park circle, where the runners looped around twice before heading back along Wellesley.
In the end, everyone survived the blistering sun and 30+ degree heat to finish . Some fabulous CBB folks that made it through include: Caitlin “Speedy Gonzalez” Waring, Ryan“The Rolling Terror” Davy, and Luke “Square Wheels” Gill. Special mention has to go out to Brittany “Cash Money” Moloney for her support during the race and “Pistol” Pete Sullivan for bring up CBB’s average time significantly (and for being the only legitimate runner of the bunch!).
