Killick hosts 5th Terry Fox Walk

Advertiser (Grand Falls) - - News - BY DAR­REN MILLS SPECIAL TO THE AD­VER­TISER

Killick Re­tire­ment Home in Bot­wood com­pleted its fifth an­nual Terry Fox walk, con­tribut­ing to the can­cer re­search Terry Fox started all those years ago.

Rox­anne Smart and her team of Killick vol­un­teers and em­ploy­ees had every­one ready to go as the Bot­wood Fire De­part­ment sent along a town truck to lead the walk.

Par­tic­i­pants walked from the Killick to the Dr. Hugh Twomey Health Cen­tre and back. They re­turned to the home for re­fresh­ments, in­clud­ing a cake cut by Ma­bel Brent, one of the Killick’s orig­i­nal 10 res­i­dents.

Smart thanked res­i­dents, staff and fam­ily mem­bers who came out to sup­port the walk. A fi­nal to­tal will be known after the Killick hosts its craft fair later in October.
