My parents sent me this newspaper clipping. My elementary school vice-principal is cycling across Canada to raise money for children's cancer treatment.
He played semi-pro basketball, if memory serves. His wife was a teacher at the school as well. I remember them being funny, gregarious, good-looking and athletic - he and his wife were universally well-liked by students and staff. Even at 11 or 12 years old we had the sense he was stand-up guy.
There's a website for the ride here, and a Facebook group here.
