Best Buddies Canada knows how to launch into an inaugural race! Nevermind the rain, hundreds of enthusiastic, caring people came out Sunday morning to support a really good cause. I was lucky enough to be asked to MC the Audi Best Buddies Charity Run AND I got to hang out with some amazingly accomplished athletes! Joannie Rochette, Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir, Alex Bilodeau and Mike Weir brought a special sparkle to the grey day. They were
warm and friendly with anyone who wanted a pic or even a chat. Love those guys and love what Penny Shore and Daniel Greenglass- co-founders of Best Buddies Canada– has done with the organization. Penny, Daniel, you help enhance the lives of the intellectually disabled people across the country, keep on keeping on you guys! So many are touched by what you do! And who can forget organizer Mary Lynn Futers. Awesome job ML!!
So what’s it like to be a celebrity on the red carpet at The Toronto International Film Festival? Toronto actress Malin Akerman (The Proposal, Couples Retreat) handles it with poise and ease wearing a J.Mendel gown. She was at TIFF supporting her new film The Bang Bang Club, in which she stars opposite Ryan Philippe. Fashion critics were torn on whether the dress was fierce or a fashion faux pas. You be the judge!
Was the PM’s special guest at the opening ceremonies of the World Junior Athletics Championships in Moncton, NB. Talked track & field with the PM, music (he’s heard of Lady Gaga), and movies (he’s seen the latest). He was into the women’s 3km race and presented medals to the winners. I’ll be at the WJC all week as the on-field announcer, will speak at a Women In Sport breakfast on July 24 and MC a very cool multicultural festival later that evening. Meanwhile looking forward to meeting more ET Canada fans from the Maritimes. So far everyone has been really friendly. Some even remember me from my track days. Thanks, Moncton!
