fauja-singhFAUJA SINGH in TORONTO – October 13, 2011 Birchmount Stadium – 8:00am to 12:00noon – Located northeast corner of Kingston Road/Birchmount, Scarborough M1N 3J7 Fauja Singh will be training and running the following distances – 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 1609m (1mile), 3000m and 5000m distances. It is possible that there may be some new records as some of these distances have not been run by a man in his age category up till now. The Sikh community is urged to come out and support him and in some cases there may be an opportunity to run alongside him.

National Banquet Hall – 6:00pm to 7:00pm – 7355 Torbram Road, Mississauga L4T 3W3 The Guru Gobind Singh Children’s Foundation (GGSCF) is having celebration with Fauja Singh 100th Birthday. Everyone is invited to come and meet him and have some cake and tea. In honour of this special occasion the GGSCF will be collecting donations for SickKids Foundation. The target is to collect $12,609 (in other words $1 for every metre Fauja Singh runs at Birchmount Stadium). Because of the short notice we will announce where people can hand in donations but the best place would be at the stadium in the morning or at the banquet hall. Tax-receipts will be available at both locations.
