Sunday morning at Douglas Park Spirit Square

Langley City Terry Fox Run Volunteer Award pays tribute to Dave Hall

An annual award in Langley City will honour longtime run volunteer Dave Hall, who lost his own battle with cancer in January.




A man who was instrumental in bringing the Terry Fox Run back to Langley City after a lengthy absence was honoured Sunday morning at Douglas Park.

Standing on the Spirit Square stage, run organizer Marg McGuire-Grout introduced the Dave Hall Volunteer Award to the large crowd of participants at this year’s fundraiser for cancer research.

A husband and father of two, as well as a longtime community politician who last served on Langley City Council before resigning to battle cancer, Hall passed away in January.

McGuire-Grout described Hall as a “dedicated volunteer,” and said the award will be handed out to a deserving volunteer, starting in 2017.

A beautiful late summer morning helped bring out lots of people in support of the cause – to raise funds for cancer research.

One of those taking part was Ed Cline, a leg amputee who walked the five-kilometre route.

Cline’s right leg had to be amputated from the knee down after he fell 25 feet off a roof. He spent seven months in hospital after the accident.

Cline was among a group, that included amputees, representing Lifemark physiotherapy.

“Lifemark has been fabulous,” he said.
