What is the festival without Blair’s run?

Contributed by Marshall Tully

Blair’s Run has been part of the Cabbagetown Festival for 35 years. It is a 2 km jog or walk around the neighbourhood that raises funds for the Cabbagetown Youth Centre. The Cabbagetown Youth Centre (CYC) provides neighborhood youth with positive alternatives through sport and recreation, while encouraging ongoing education. See the website for more information www.cabbagetownyouth.ca
