One of the activities keeping me busy lately is my #1 Goal of 2011, which is to raise funds for a sponsorship program organized by People to People AID Organization (Canada) Inc. We have a personal connection to the dedicated individuals involved with this program and have done a lot of research to feel assured that funds are well used to benefit children who have been orphaned in Ethiopia because of HIV-AIDS.
I’m so very happy to announce that we have firmed up the venue and the date for the fundraising gala my husband and I are organizing. It will be held on Tuesday, May 3, 2011 at C5 Restaurant in the ROM. Check out C5 and the Winterliscious menu HERE
My morning run was a loop over to drop a birthday present off to a niece. I passed through Hillcrest Park with its fine view of the city. Although, my small camera does not at all do it justice.
On the way back I took a pit stop at the Athletic Centre at University of Toronto and spotted some advertisements for some interesting sport-related presentations, all open to the public.
The one I was most interested in took place yesterday. Too bad. I’ll have to remember to drop in more regularly to see what is on offer.
Runs, overdue photography assignments, gala planning, blogging, weightlifting . . . makes for busy days. So much to do, so little time, gotta go . . . ciao!
p.s. Please leave a comment if you would like more information about the Gala. Thank you.

That is such great news about the Gala! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you out. What a wonderful cause to support! I hope that in the next few months I have more time and, with the weather improving, can get out more!

Thanks so much for your enthusiasm and offer of help Robyn. I’ll be in touch by email to discuss this further.

Wow, C5 is ultra modern! I think a little spot of colour might be nice.
On a different matter altogether, do you have any books/websites/etc you can recommend for a beginner to weightlifting? I really want to make use of the machines and free weights in our gym downstairs, and put together some semblance of a routine.
