Warming up at the Terry Fox Run in Calgary this morning! Great turn out; it was a beautiful day to celebrate a Canadian hero and his legacy that continues to bring people together in the spirit of hope and determination in the face of life's challenges. Thank you Terry πŸ™πŸΌ #terryfox #terryfoxrun #terryfoxrunyyc #yyc

I'll be joining the 5 million who will be participating in the Terry Fox Run across the globe in support of cancer research. I'm running for all those who have been affected by cancer, including my "deda" (grandfather) who passed away from lung cancer. My deda immigrated to Canada from Croatia, worked in the lumbar industry in northern Ontario, then found a Croatian community in Schumacher Ontario where he worked as a black smith in the mine. Growing up I saw through him the value of working hard, in being a part of a community, and in never losing sight of how fortunate it is to be living in a country like Canada. I'll be at Telus Spark tomorrow, as the Ambassador the Calgary Terry Fox Run @terryfoxcalgary Come join!
