Rolling Rampage On The Hill

Thursday October 10, 2013 was a very special day! Indeed, hundreds of elementary students participated to the 8th Annual Rolling Rampage event on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. The aim of the event was first to showcase International Wheelchair Racing and to deliver the message that sports are accessible to all.

The sponsor of the event was The Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons, which is committed to advancing the immeasurable abundance of skill and capacity in Canada’s disability community.

Some of the world’s fastest wheelchair athletes have showcased their talent in a Men’s and Women’s 10K International Wheelchair Road Race. International Athletes coming from Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Japan, Korea and South Africa were present for that special event, such as Josh Cassidy, Diane Roy, Ernst Van Dyk and Amanda McGrory, to compete for $30,000 in prizes.

The Rolling Rampage On The Hill also welcomed Senators, Members of Parliament, and Ministers such as the Minister of State for Sport Bal Gosal. This event was an opportunity to show how sport can be inspiring and how strong is its healing power is for disabled persons.

The King of Design Weekends: The King East Design District Exhibition

King St East, Toronto, design district, logo

The first annual King East Design District Exhibition was a masterpiece event! Thanks to all our supporters and participants. Hundreds of passports were sold, and over $2500 was raised for Habitat for Humanity Toronto. KEDD set out to inspire decorators and designers, and do-it-your-selfers, and bring communities together by mutually supporting a great cause. With everyone’s help we were able to reach and surpass these goals.

The weekend of creativity was full of laughter, good eats, and great works of interior art.  KEDD visitors had the chance to venture on “Designer Strolls”, take part in design consultations, view the finest Italian furniture and even get a history lesson by seeing Moroso’s “Behind, After or Beyond” travelling exhibit.  KEDDers also had the opportunity to join the Andrew Richards Design Team to learn how to give their backyards a make-over. And if all that didn’t get your design muses singing then learning how to toss a pizza at Mangi & Bevi, eating delicious treats with Mari Loewen from ANNA Magazine and chatting with celebrity designer Ramsin Khachi at Cambria sure did the trick.

KEDD guests showed much enthusiasm and appreciation for the King East Design District. Several visitors had their KEDD passports in hand and design questions in mind. Many were eager to find out how they could transform their small spaces while others simply wanted a change from traditional spaces to modern designs. Nonetheless, all had one thing in common; they needed inspiration.

The exhibition allowed for individuals to take the opportunity to drop by and enjoy the city’s design district. The event called for those who wanted to take time out of their busy lives and really seize an afternoon for a simple glass of wine, a few nibbles and a scenic endeavour.  Journalist, Rob Campbell even wrote an article about the exhibit in Digital Journal titled, King St East now recognized as Design District of Toronto. Along with Campbell there were many other  industry professionals present who felt the exhibition invigorated the design community making the event worthwhile and something to be repeated for years to come.

So whether you live in a lavish downtown condo, or you’re still dwelling in your mother’s basement, we hope the weekend enlightened those who needed refreshing ideas and gave a little nudge to those hesitating with a design dare. Toronto has a lot to offer and the King East Design District is definitely a must-see destination to fill up on your creative juices.

We hope everyone enjoyed their journey through the district and picked up innovative ideas along the way. We’ll be back next year with more design good times!
