Looking back at our First Move-a-thon & BBQ

Our hearts are full as we reflect on our Let's Move Willowdale event on Saturday at Hendon Park! Hundreds of neighbours came together on a beautiful sunny day to walk, run and ride from Hendon Park through the Finch Hydro Corridor and back! Then we celebrated with a BBQ and live entertainment! Not only did we have an amazing time, we were also able to pass the halfway mark of our 50K Spring/Summer Fundraising goal!
