Cabbagetown Youth Centre RUNS the streets of Toronto on Sunday March 19th!

Contributed By Heather Hopkins
Last December the Cabbagetown Boxing Club hosted its first live amateur boxing event in some years. The full house enjoyed a very exciting and competitive fight card. If you missed it, don’t worry, you can catch more boxing action again in September, as part of the annual Cabbagetown festival.
On Sunday March 19th, the 3rd annual Shamrocks and Sneakers 4K Fun Run kicks off at noon ahead of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Yes, run or jog along the parade route, lined with people, cheering you on. Grab your friends and family, wear your Cabbagetown, Irish green.

 
The parade route begins at Bloor Street West and Devonshire Place (near St. George Subway Station), continues along Bloor, turns south on Yonge and ends on Queen Street West at York Street, in front of Nathan Phillips Square.

 
The registration fee is $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for children 12 and under. All proceeds, from the run will assist programs at the CYC. For more information see the event on line at https://raceroster.com/events/2017/11911/shamrocks-sneakers-4k
