Le 40e du Club Richelieu

Le 25 août dernier, le Club Richelieu réunissait plus de 125 invités, lors d’un brunch au Château Montebello, pour cé- lébrer son 40e anniversaire. Plusieurs an- ciens membres du Club Richelieu se sont joints aux membres des autres clubs de la région pour fraterniser avec les membres actuels du Club. Le président fondateur, Gilles Patenaude, et le président du club de Rockland en 1972, Urbain Lavigne, étaient présents pour offrir leurs vœux. Gilles Mé-

nard, le président de l’Association des Clubs Richelieu de la Région des Fondateurs, et Denis Bédard, administrateur de la région Long-Sault/Carillon, ont également pris la parole pour féliciter le club et reconnaître cinq membres qui font toujours partie du Club d’Embrun après 40 années d’existence. On aperçoit dans l’ordre, Gilles Ménard, du Club Richelieu Aylmer, Maurice Godard, Paul Lamoureux, Jean-Claude Clark, Denis Brunet et Gilles Gratton.

Terry Fox was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and raised in Port Co- quitlam, British Columbia, a community near Vancouver on Canadaʼs west coast. An active teenager involved in many sports, Terry was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) and forced to have his right leg amputated 15 centimetres (six inches) above the knee in 1977. While in hospital, Terry was so overcome by the suffering of other can- cer patients, many of them young children, that he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He would call his journey the Marathon of Hope. After 18 months and running over 5,000 kilometres (3,107 miles) to prepare, Terry started his run in St. Johnʼs, Newfoundland on April 12, 1980 with little fanfare. Although it was difficult to garner attention in the beginning, enthusiasm soon grew, and the money collected along his route began to mount. He ran close to 42 kilometres (26 miles) a day through Canadaʼs Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario. However, on September 1st, after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 miles), Terry was forced to stop running outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario be- cause cancer had appeared in his lungs. An entire nation was stunned and saddened. Terry passed away on June 28, 1981 at the age 22. The heroic Canadian was gone, but his legacy was just beginning. To date, over $600 million has been raised worldwide for cancer re- search in Terryʼs name through the annual Terry Fox Run, held across Canada and around the world.
