The evening at Chandni Gateway Banquet Hall attracted 150 individuals from the Greater Toronto Area and across Canada. The evening began with guests enjoying snacks and presentations on the foundation’s history in the foyer. Guest were then seated and organizers played a small 25 minute clip of the Children’s Run Across Canada. The short clip evoked many memories of the run and brought back smiles to all those who participated. After the clip, Canadian Boxer Andrew Singh Kooner congratulated the runners and also announced that a portion of the proceeds from his upcoming fight will be donated to the foundation. Soon after, participants from East, Centre, West, and Base teams were awarded medals for their contribution and efforts to make the run successful. Volunteers were also awarded special tokens of appreciation for their contributions on many fronts. Following the awards presentation, guests enjoyed dinner along with entertainment such as bhangra and listened to guest speaker Professor Dhaliwal from Vancouver. Awards were then presented to the sponsors and gurdwaras who assisted in making this run possible financially and in various other ways. The evening concluded with a speech from Paneet Kaur and as guests left, DVDs of the Children’s Run Across Canada were distributed to all who were present at the event. Thank you to all those who came out to the event; your support is greatly appreciated.
