A big congratulations are in order for members of Team Corsage, who recently took on the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon to raise funds for The Corsage Project.
Team Corsage came together to run or walk anywhere from 5KM to a full marathon in support the young women they work with each year at their Boutique Ball. This year, the team raised a whopping $9,233.00. That money will go directly toward helping provide prom attire — free of charge — to Toronto-area young women and LGBT youth facing economic barriers. Together, with the support of their donors, they’re also raising funds for post-secondary scholarships. Congrats to the runners, volunteers, cheerleaders and team organizers!
As runner and committee member Leonie Tomlinson said in a recent Children’s Aid Foundation spotlight: this team “is an extraordinary group of like-minded individuals actively engaged in giving back to the community by way of walking, running, or volunteering to improve the quality of life of Toronto’s most vulnerable residents.”
