Holmes honoured at Terry Fox Run CANDICE VETTER

(a form of blood cancer) was honoured, along with his parents Darrell and Diana, at the Embrun-Russell Terry Fox Run held between the villages on the !tness trail on Sunday, September 14. Holmes is doing well now and is even re- turning to school. “We’re more than delighted as a family,”

said his father Darrell, a sergeant with the OPP. “We thank the Russell community for your support in our journey. Each and every one of you had a role to play in where Mat- thew has had to go.” Township mayor J.P. St. Pierre also spoke brie!y, stressing the importance of the two communities of Russell and Embrun com- ing together in this event. He also praised long-time organizer Cindy Saucier. Saucier was very pleased with the turnout and funds raised, and profusely thanked her 30 volunteers, many of whom have volun-

teered for as long as she has, her 200 par- ticipants, her corporate sponsors and the Township. Over $13,000 were, including the Scotiabank $5000 contribution. Amounts raised by local schools that are holding their own separate Terry Fox Runs will also be added to the amount. The "nal tally may exceed $14,000. This brings the total amount of money Saucier and her helpers have raised for the Embrun-Russell run to over $264,000 over three decades.
