MLA gives shout out to local resident Shane Worman

Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick acknowledges Kelowna resident Shane Worman's contribution to Terry Fox Run fundraising.

Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick gave tribute in the B.C. Legislature this week to Kelowna resident Shane Worman.

Letnick spoke up during second reading of the ‘Terry Fox Day Act’ on Tuesday. In his speech, Letnick referenced local fundraising efforts for the annual Terry Fox Run in Kelowna, which in recent years has been organized by Shane Worman, a 10-year cancer survivor.

“The 1,400 participants raising over $100,000 in our small part of the world, all because of Terry Fox and his vision and his desire to make sure that he’d leave this planet in a better place than he found it—a real testament to the human spirit,” Letnick said.

“That’s what Terry Fox has given us. He’s given us that purpose…to do our bit to fight cancer by raising a few dollars for cancer research.

“That research has helped not only Shane Worman and his family but our friends right here in this legislature.”
