More than 1,000 members came out for the Awareness Day festivities on Thursday, August 9, 2012, at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto. They arrived on the 13 buses sent down with CITs from Orangeville, on subways and city buses, and by car. The theme of this year’s event was Renovate Your Body—Lift Your Spirit. A sea of green t-shirts repulsed monkeys and carried tigers as passers-by and local media watched from 9 am until 2 pm. Some even got into the act, learning a few movies at impromptu classes on the square, and following along with the group. Local dignitaries addressing the crowd included several national Members of Parliament, elected Ontario officials, and councillors from Toronto and vicinity. Representatives from each of the 26 countries that are home to branches of Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi International also spoke to the public. The rain didn’t dampen the fun, or the health benefits from the 15 or so sets that participants did during the day. Luckily, Larry Frazer was there to capture some great images of it all. Hope to see you next year.
