Wiarton Echo - - CLASSIFIEDS -

A fundraiser will be held to sup­port lo­cal cham­pi­onship skier, Ju­lian Smith, at Sawmill Trails in Hep­worth, Feb. 18.

A hot soup lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on site or avail­able as take­away. The cost is by do­na­tion with all monies raised con­tribut­ing to Smith’s travel costs as he rep­re­sents Canada in the In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Cup, the B Tour, in Ger­many, Switzer­land and Aus­tria.

Smith started ski­ing Jack Rab­bits when he was five years old. His love of the out­doors and en­cour­age­ment of the lo­cal ski com­mu­nity saw him achieve many lo­cal, pro­vin­cial and na­tional medals in Nordic ski­ing as he skied for both West Hill Se­condary School and Ge­or­gian Bay Nordic.

He is cur­rently in Europe, hav­ing re­cently re­turned from com­pet­ing

n at the World Ju­nior Cham­pi­onships in Utah.

Smith is in his third year at the Na­tional Devel­op­ment Cen­tre in Thun­der Bay On­tario.

When Smith is home in the spring he speaks to ele­men­tary stu­dents about goal set­ting, over­com­ing ad­ver­sity and liv­ing a won­der­ful life.
