Terry Fox Tribute This Saturday

This Saturday marks the 34th anniversary of the day Terry Fox started his "Marathon of Hope" back in 1980. At 9am 8:30am Eddy Nolan of Montreal will be at the Terry Fox statue by the St. John's Port Authority Water Street east.

Mr. Nolan is spearheading a campaign to have April 12 recognized officially as Terry Fox Day in Canada to honour Terry's contribution to Canada and the world. A cancer survivor, he has for the past three years had runners in every Province and Territory run on this day as a tribute to Terry's dream, and he has run every Terry Fox Run (September) since 1981!

On this his first visit to Newfoundland, Eddy invites all runners, walkers and survivors to join him this Saturday as he re-traces Terry's initial route.

Try 10 Miles On Good Friday

Good Friday is just 10 days away and as usual there will be a fine crew of runners taking to the Tely 10 route for a little practice.

Runners will converge on McNamara Drive in Paradise for the traditional 10-mile trek to Bannerman Park and while many individuals and groups have their own starting times, the largest crowd hits the start line at 9am.

Note this is NOT an official, organized, supported or sanctioned event in any way! Just seems to be a popular time and route for everyone on this particular day! If you do partake stay on the sidewalks and be careful out there! Everyone runs at their own risk and don't expect any marshals, traffic control or assistance of any kind. Find a few friends and carpool from the finish to the start.
