Earl Cook Family & Friends "The Titaium Wall"

Hello Everyone,

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.

To all team members,
We will be meeting at the Lyric Theater in Assiniboine Park at 8:45 tomorrow (Sunday September 16) Registration begins at 9:00, but I do believe you can register online also. Mayor Sam Katz will start the Run at 10:00
We are at home most of today preparing a banner and getting organized so call us if you have any questions.
Debbie, Earl and Darby

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.

Let's Support Cancer Research Together

Earl is recovering well from his second surgery. He will be coming home in a day or two and will be on IV antibiotics for 6 weeks. Chemo will hopefully resume when antibiotics are complete.
He is very excited (or am I more excited) about the upcoming Terry Fox Run in which he (we) will take part. Earl has his own team called:"Earl Cook family & friends THE TITATIUM WALL" The team number is "MB1529" You can support him in this in several ways.
1. You can particiapate in the 1-10 km walk/run and collect your own pledges.
2. You can donate (to us in person or online at terryfoxrun.org)
3. You can volunteer on the day of the run which is being held in Winnipeg at Assiniboine Park
(to do this check with the local office 231-5282 to see if they still need volunteers)

All Team members we will meet at the registration area by the Lyric Theater on Sunday Morning 8:45.
Call me if you have any questions
