“First held in 2003, the Run for Vaughan is an exciting local event organized by Ahmadiyya Muslim youth in support of Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital,” said Lecce. “Since its inception, the run has brought our community together and generated more than $1 million to support our state-of-the-art hospital. We are grateful for the generosity of Flato Developments and Ahmadiyya youth for stepping up to support Vaughan’s hospital and the health of our community.”
