Ford Green, Bad­deck, poses with this year’s Terry Fox Run T-shirt. This is Ford’s 30th year as or­ga­niz­ing chair for the an­nual run/walk on be­half of the Bad­deck Lions Club. The Bad­deck Lions Club hosted Terry Fox for sup­per on his cross-coun­try run 37 years ago. Ford was work­ing in Mil­lville at the time and he’ll never for­get see­ing Terry Fox run­ning. “One of my big­gest re­grets was not stop­ping.” County War­den Bruce Mor­ri­son, Don­nie Ma­caulay, Alex Hil­lier, Margo Ma­caulay and Alex Ni­chol­son have com­pleted the run/walk each year for the last 36 years and are ex­pected to par­tic­i­pate this year.

The 10km Bad­deck run/walk will start at the Bras D’or Yacht Club Sun­day, Sept. 17, 1pm (reg­is­tra­tion at noon). Par­tic­i­pants will walk round trip to the “AA” Hall on Bad­deck Bay Road. Re­fresh­ments will be avail­able af­ter the run. No skate­boards or bikes, please.
