Terry Fox Run attracts 53 determined runners in Masset

  • Sep. 18, 2006 2:00 p.m.

Submitted by Marg Youngson-“A Single Dream – A World of Hope” That dream was very much alive in Masset Sunday as 53 determined runners, walkers, strollers, and cyclists braved and persevered the blustery southeast winds which brought rain and more rain – it just would not let up!
Thank you to all our volunteers: Delmas Co-op for generously donating the oranges, juices and hot dogs – they were much appreciated by everyone who stopped at the water stations – manned by Curtis Vanhove and Willie Youngson. Corrina and Jordan Stewart-Burton, at Tahayghen school, prepared and served the hot dogs to wet, thirsty and hungry students and parents. At the village office, Jack Thorgeirson and Fran Redick did the registration and compiled monies and pledges.
Thanks to Const. Darby Klekta and Const. John Johnson and Cliff Redick for ensuring our safety on the roads.
Congratulations to everyone that came out to support the annual Terry Fox Run – thank you – as we could not do it without you and we are deeply grateful to each and everyone of you for the time and energy that you give each year! Your donations and pledges of $1,239.35 will go to cancer research. See you next year!
