Brant, Send us your Centurians to support Terry Fox run!

Vera Armstrong now lives in Bobcaygeon but her eldest daughter, Janet Bradford  (from Brantford) and her family, are rooting for another year of Vera’s advocacy on behalf of the Terry Fox  campaign.

Vera is 102.

 

She personally raised $1200 last year and did it, trundling along with her walker, down the street like everyone else. This year she agreed to be part of an official welcoming committee in the Kawarthas. One of her great-grandchildren, in Brant, has lost his leg similarly as Terry did. So much positive results have come from the millions raised by the Terry Fox Foundation to benefit mankind, such that it is no longer always the death sentence it used to be. Wherever you live, however you consider your donations to medical solutions and whenever we all cherish the lives of friends and relatives, please consider this worthy cause.

(Publisher’s note: This is the memory I have of Terry Fox, seen running by our house on Colborne Street. There were three generations of our family in lawn chairs at the curb that day, with umbrellas, cheering and crying with joy for that precious moment. I would like to thank the Terry Fox Foundation of Brantford for this image as seen on their web page.)

It is time to fill the void as a result of Brant News closing. Online...free...no flyers delivered... I'm ready. I have been in media for over 50 years: Television Broadcasting; Print Investigative and Photo Journalism ; a VERY brief turn in Radio; Cable Television; and now publishing a live Digital News Platform. My community board contributions have covered: Health Care (BGH, John Noble Home and Lansdowne Children's Centre); Post Secondary Education; Special Olympics, Sports Council; Victim Services; Rotary; and Physician Recruitment Task Force. Married with 3 daughters, 6 grandchildren, 5 step grandchildren, one great grandson and one step great grandson. My spare time passions include professional and amateur photography, soap stone carving, writing, travel and scuba diving as a Dive Master. Finally, I have served as a City Councillor for 4 years and as a community advocate/consultant for residents and local business for 8 years since then. Join us in sharing stories 4BRANT
