Well tomorrow is the Terry Fox Run here in Winnipeg. Earl is pumped and ready to go and I have mastered the IV antibiotic treatment so we will be there. Yesterday Earl spoke at and participated in the Terry Fox Run at Arthur A. Leach School where he attended Jr High. He did a great job encouraging the students and staff to be enthusiastic about the run and actually completed the 3km distance himself (with the help of his good friend Torey.) He used his crutches and a wheelchair and was very proud of himself for making it.
From the website:
There is no pre-registration or registration fee for the Terry Fox Run. Please show up at least a 1/2 hour before the start time if you wish to be involved in the official start.
All locations have a 10 km course with many providing shorter routes for families and children. If your area is not listed or you require further information, e-mail or call the Manitoba office.
For one month after the Run, you can take your money and pledge sheet to any Canadian bank or send it to the provincial office listed at the top of this page afterwhich, it must be mailed to the provincial office.
