Mayor Hobbs Will Meet Runner Raising Funds for Cancer Research

April 10, 2012 – Mayor Keith Hobbs will greet former Olympic boxer Mike Strange on Thursday before the Niagara Falls man begins his journey to complete Terry Fox’s run across Canada.

Matteo Mancini, a boy who lost his left leg to the same type of cancer that Terry Fox had, inspired Strange to run from Thunder Bay to Victoria, B.C. Strange and run organizers have received support for the run from the Fox family.

Mayor Hobbs hopes residents will come to the Terry Fox Lookout at 9 am on Thursday, April 12 to support Strange at the start of his journey to raise funds for cancer research.
