Call for support: JT Daycare Co-op

Hi all:
We're trying to generate interest in a parent-involved daycare cooperative in the Junction Triangle area, and are looking for support from both families who would like to participate in an alternative model of providing childcare, and community members who would like to see more community-centered initiatives like this in the area.

After care and pick up/drop off

Hi Junction Parents!
I am a nanny turned mom offering part time childcare in my home. My son will be two in the fall and a friend mentioned that many parents are looking for pick up/drop off and after care for their child(ren).
If you are looking for this type of care and are interested in meeting me to see if we're a good fit please contact me by post or email and we can set something up!
We live near Dundas W and Runnymede.

Event on Wallace Ave bridge, Saturday, June 7th 10-5

Hey everyone,

I am new to this forum and actually live just on the west side of the bridge so I guess I am not officially part of the Junction Triangle, but I am very interested in bringing the communities on either side of the bridge closer together.

Railpath Community Run

Info for the Railpath Community Run website:

To celebrate the West Toronto Railpath, and promote health within our communities we’ll be hosting the 2nd Annual Community Run on September 29th, 2013 on the West Toronto Railpath. Our charitable partner for the event is The Stop Community Food Centre.

This event has a unique format that differentiates it from other local running events. Instead of a set distance (such as 5km), this is a timed lap-based event. In 45 minutes, participants will complete as many laps of the 2.1 km stretch as possible.

This is great to practice your speed-work as a competitive runner, or not be overwhelmed by needing to complete a big distance as a new runner or casual walker. There is something for everyone, and you decide what that is for you! Registration is available online here.

Our tentative schedule of the day’s events are as follows:

  • 8:30 – 9:00 – Support tents open / Racer information table open
  • 9:00 – 9:15 – Kick Off
  • 9:15 – 10:00 – Wave 1 (Competitive Runners)
  • 10:00 – 10:30 – Wave 1 Prizes & Staging for Wave 2
  • 10:05 – 10:20 – Post-Run Yoga by You Defined
  • 10:30 – 11:15 – Wave 2 (Walkers & Casual Runners)
  • 11:15 – 11:30 – Wave 2 Prizes & Close

We are planning on having lots of great prizes for our participants. Prizes will be award for top finishers and random draw prizes, so both competitive and fun run/walk participants are eligible.

Bells on Bloor (Bike ride / Parade)

Text from Peter Low, a Bells on Bloor volunteer:

Hello Junction Triangle Residents,

Our 7th annual Bells on Bloor family bicycle parade will be held on Saturday May 11, beginning shortly after 12:00noon from the front gates of High Park (at High Park Ave and Bloor St West). We will be traveling east on Bloor St to St George, where we will turn right to travel southbound to Hoskins, turning left on Hoskins to go east to Queen's Park Crescent, then turning right to go southbound to the tip of Queen's Park, where we will dismount from our bikes and walk north on the sidewalk to finish at the front of the Ontario Legislature Building. For this year, the route has been slightly changed to avoid conflict with the Freedom Festival, that will be gathering at the intersection of Bloor Street and Queen's Park Crescent.
As in years past, the family bike ride will be accompanied by around 16 members of the Toronto Police Bike Unit (arranged with 11 Division) and 4 members of St John's Ambulance Bike Unit.
