Raise money for Warren Hoselton Tree Fund

Do you love the Toronto Islands? The Longboat Roadrunners do!

For the past 38 years, the Longboat Toronto Island Run has taken place on Toronto Islands without interruption. We love Toronto Islands, their vibe, and their unique scenery. We want to give back to the Islands, so this year one of our official race charities is the Warren Hoselton Tree Fund.

Warren has been the Park Supervisor at Toronto Island Park for over 16 years and is well-known to residents and visitors alike.  Not only do Warren and his team of Park Staff maintain the Park throughout the year for the benefit of all, but they have been long-time supporters of the Island Run. Though you might not notice them on Race Day, their support for the Run is indispensable.

It won’t come as surprise that Warren loves trees. As a way to show appreciation for Warren's hard work and dedication, an anonymous donor has stepped forward to create the Warren Hoselton Tree Fund. The anonymous donor will match every dollar donated by the public to the Warren Hoselton Tree Fund up to $2500 per year over the next four years (2016 – 2019) to go towards tree planting on the Islands. The goal of this campaign is to plant hundreds of trees of varying species throughout Toronto Island Park and to strengthen the canopy through diversity.

To show our support, the Longboat Roadrunners will be making a direct donation to the Warren Hoselton Tree Fund. But you can chip in too by raising money for the WHTF. The money will go towards tree planting hundreds of trees on Toronto Island Park. What could be a better legacy?
