Oct 29th is going to be a tremendously exciting day for the Guru Gobind Singh Children’s Foundation as together we are going to be playing host to a special guest advocate group called Invisible Children. Invisible Children is non-profit organization which was created to giving individuals a way to respond to the situation in Uganda where many innocent children have been and are being forcefully inducted into the war rebellion.  The story of the invisible children sparked a grassroots movement mobilizing thousands of American teens into action to raise money to rebuild war-torn schools in northern Uganda and provide scholarships to African youth and now they are on a North American tour to show their new documentary and keep the movement alive.

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.

Punjabi Media,

Further to the earlier Press Release issued on 22Sep2011, this is a update on Fauja Singh’s program when he visits us next week. Please let your readers/listeners know that he will be coming and that they can see him at the venues identified on the latest Press Release. At the moment we do not know if he will be running in the STWM as this depends upon his health but I know everyone wants him to and some papers have already reported this. However it would be good if you can encourage our community to come out and support him at Birchmount Stadium as runners may get a chance to run alongside him. Read more…
