37th annual Terry Fox run
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.
