Last weekend Cadillac Fairview hosted it’s 13th annual 5K Run/Walk in support of the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) and Sick Kids. We proudly sponsored the event and riled up a team from head office and our Dufferin café to brave the cold for a good cause!

While we aren’t known for healthy initiatives, we were excited to burn off some of that ice cream and get active!

Bright and early on Sunday morning, the team assembled at Shops at Don Mills in the cold and dreary 5°C weather ready to get our run on.

Decked out in our Team Demetres shirts, we set off for the run! While most of us walked, our pastry chef Amy zipped through the course making us so very proud!

As we trickled in across the finish line everyone was awarded a medal, some food and refreshments. Chef Amy finished first and cheered on the rest of us as we slowly finished and claimed our medals!

Once the race was complete, the top three men and top three women were awarded their prizes, followed by CF presenting a BIG cheque of $250,000 raised for POGO and Sick Kids. Look at those smiles!

It was an amazing fundraiser for an even better cause and we are so grateful to have been a part of it. Cheers to more healthy events to come! Go Team Demetres!
