Canada 7 July: Kimberley, British Columbia - Blairmore, Alberta
Running from BC into Alberta
Many thanks to Lisa Oldenburger, Manager and Shari Leyte, Guest Services Coordinator of Northstar Mountain Village (pictured in middle with the Torch) for making us feel so welcomed and providing such beautiful accommodations. It was so refreshing and luxurious for all of us on the team who have been camping out endless nights.
Councillor Dan McSkimming reads the Proclamation of Peace and Friendship signed by Fernie Town Council and countless other towns and cities across Canada and the Untied States.
Mayor Lois Halko graciously received our Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of the community of Sparwood.
Now the real running begins... we tried to keep up to these local hot shots. Actually it was an honour to run with these Sparwood students who are all competing in the BC Summer Games in a few weeks.
