"Marrow Movers" Walking for AAMAC -Sunday September 27, 2009

Sunday September 27, 2009 is the 20th Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon – fast, flat and festive! AAMAC is one of the official charities that will use the five kilometre walk/run as a fundraiser. It is the first time we will be participating, as the ‘Marrow Movers’.

Beginning at 10:20 a.m. inside the Princes’ Gate of the Canadian National Exhibition, the short and scenic distance finishes at Toronto City Hall’s Nathan Phillips Square in time to meet friends for brunch. A brisk walk several times a week is usually enough to get you prepared for a 5K route. This is an ideal event for the whole family to support — there are no age restrictions!

You can register online for the walk, and even the fundraising. Donationscan be made online or you can download a pledge form from either the race website or our own site, www.aamac.ca.

Let’s make this a cross-country event! Online pledging means you can support this fundraising effort by rounding up support for any of the walkers/runners registered to support AAMAC. You don’t have to be in Toronto to participate!

Join the ‘Marrow Movers’ today!
• Each Marrow Mover receives a red and white “Lifeblood” bracelet.
• Raise $250 or more and we’ll cover your entry fee for the 5K walk.
• Walk with your family – the first 12 children age 13 or under who join the walk will each receive one Webkinz® pet courtesy of GANZ. (Just email or phone Susan with your child’s name.)
• The Marrow Mover who raises the most funds for AAMAC this year will receive a $50 movie gift certificate.
• Let us know if you are walking in honour or memory of someone and we’ll include their name in our national newsletter.
