Blog Guelph: Walking!

Walking!, originally uploaded by TheGiantVermin.

Many many lifetimes ago I was a crazy young runner and a beautiful lad named Terry Fox stole my heart. I had the great fortune to meet Terry at Nathan Philips Square when he blew through Toronto on his massive odyssey across Canada.
While this is hardly the "AlternaNews" we like to discuss here at Blog Guelph, it is important to note that this Sunday is the annual Terry Fox Run. People will run. walk, ride to raise funds for cancer research in honour of Terry's Marathon of Hope.
Like me, you may not be a joiner. You may choose to forgo one of the many public events, may not even raise any funds at all. But risking a preacherly tone, I'd like to plant this seed of an idea in your minds: walk, run, ride, dance for that matter this Sunday BECAUSE YOU CAN. Help someone else who can't. Be grateful that you are here and are able to move on this earth.

Haven't got the proper footwear? Perhaps these 6 fab photogs will lend you a pair.....
