Video:Lookyus- Tommy’s happy group Whee photos and family, friends and fan photos after T20 5000 race in London

A group photo Whee with Tommy’s “Tomtourage” of family members and friends who came to cheer him on for the T20 5000m race at World Para Athletic Championships London 2017 (there that day-Tommy’s Aunt Marie from Paris, with her husband Laurent and kids Jules, Jeanne, and little Paul, big brother Paul and sister in law Laura from Winnipeg, Aunt Cynthia and Uncle Charles from Vancouver, friends Chelsea, Ryan, Diane, Rick, and of course, Mom MaryAnn and Dad Peter!) Then some families asked Tommy to pose with them for a photo! We also took some family photos, and then headed back to Tommy’s hotel room so he could get ready to go sightseeing be a tourist in downtown London!
Hope this video makes you feel like you were there that day! All of you who have supported and cheered for Tommy, near and far, were all there that day in spirit with Tommy, and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts 🙂 #whee #autismmeansfriendship
