150 people in Toronto went running to take back the Danforth

Toronto is holding strong after a mass shooting that left two dead Sunday night. In a mission to take back the street, 150 people gathered last night to run the Danforth.

Participants gathered at Coxwell Ave and the Danforth—the scene of another shooting in 2015—and ran, walked, and jogged to Bowden Street, the location of this week's shooting. 

Sarah Kiriliuk, who organized the event, posted a group photo to Twitter thanking those who came out.

"We won't let violence scare us away from being a strong community," she wrote on Facebook. 

A vigil is planned for tonight along the Danforth. A candelight procession has been organized by the local BIAs. It begins at 7 p.m at Bowden Street.
