Good Morning Burlington,
September is a great month for community philanthropy and we have no shortage of amazing organizations and events in our city to support many important causes.
This morning I raised the flag for the annual Terry Fox Run in support of cancer research, taking place this coming Sunday, September 19th. The Burlington Humane Society Ruff Ride takes place that same morning to raise funds in support of their mandate to help stray and abandoned animals and find them their forever homes. Also on Sunday, the Appleby Street Festival is back on this year and helps support the Gift of Giving Back and our local food banks.
On September 20th we will raise the flag for the United Way of Halton & Hamilton as they announce their annual fundraising goal, and September 21st is Carpenter Hospice’s Golf Tournament followed by the Hike for Carpenter Hospice on September 25th.
Thanks to all those who organize, participate, and donate to these valued causes in our community!
