When you pray, move your feet.


Art City needs our help. Founded in 1997 by internationally acclaimed artist Wanda Koop, Art City is committed to providing professional *free* art programming to West Broadway inner-city children.  They maintain six outreach locations and provide nutritional hot meals to dozens of hungry West Broadway children six days a weeks, fifty-two weeks a year. 

Art City is all that and so much more. It is the heart and soul of this diamond in the rough West Broadway neighbourhood.  Indeed for many of its citizens, Art City is a lifeline. Art City fills the cracks and voids of social programming and access to mental health opportunities.  Art City is a beacon of possibility, a place of hope, a bed of positivity.

Presently Art City is in financial distress and calls upon us to move our feet.

African proverb.
On Sunday, December 3, 2017 I will run ten loops of the Wolseley Avenue/ Wellington Crescent trail for a combined total of twenty bridge crossings and fifty-eight kilometers (thirty-six miles). Start time is 0600 from my front door.  The goal is to raise $3000 for Art City.

Please join me.  Move your feet. Run, walk, cycle, or wheel a loop or two. Grab a pledge sheet (coming soon) and bring it to the office. Throw money at me as I run by (throw more if I'm crawling), or make a secure online donation by clicking hereAll donations of $25 or more will receive a tax-receipt.  

God tweeted. She's giving a free pass from church on December 3 if instead you move your feet for Art City. 

It's a good day to be alive.
