After the run, he attended the STWM EXPO as a speaker with his coaches, Harmander Singh and Nimral Singh, and also met the Toronto Vegetarian Association. Later that afternoon, he made a visit to Scarborough Gurdwara and had langar. In anticipation of the next day’s race, there was training provided in Milliken Park where the community got to warm up with him and his coaches and do a lap around the park. This was followed with a birthday celebration with children and, of course, lots of pictures and signing of autographs. After the long day, Fauja Singh was allowed to rest to prepare for his early morning 5km race tomorrow.
