On Tuesday July 24, 11:30 am at Cape Spear National Park, the presentation of the Torch Bearer Award will be made to Dr. Valerie Long by the World Harmony Run organization, honouring her as this province's winner of this prestigious award and we invite you to attend and show her your support. "The Torch-bearer Award is an award which recognizes and honours individuals who have been of extraordinary inspiration and service to their communities". Valerie's work with HHMAC and Les MS is an indication of that inspiration to the community and we are proud to announce this award on her behalf.
The international run will conclude at Cape Spear as the torch is passed and with a ceremonial run of 2 km to the finish line, and runners who wish to join are also invited to participate. T-shirts will be provided to all runners. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the run and give her your size for the shirt. This is a public event so spread the word to your friends and colleagues. Runners are asked to meet at Victoria Park Day Camp at 10:30 to receive their shirts and, if you wish, you will be driven to the site of the run and then returned to Victoria Park at the end of the ceremony (approximately 12:00-12:30).
