2012_race_against_racism_2On June 16th, the 12th annual Race Against Racism took place at Mississauga Valley Park. It started off with Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion sharing a few words with the participants and the singing of the national anthem. The participants then lined up and started the 5-kilometre race. They continued on streets, through scenic parks, over bridges and along streams before finally returning to finish. The Foundation was well represented with 14 participants as well as an information booth where we were able to tell people about all the fun things we do. As always, people from many different community groups attended and participants enjoyed the free food and diverse cultural entertainment after the race. This year there were more participants than ever and the event was much enjoyed. The race is organized by Peel Regional Police to celebrate the diversity in our community.
