Fundraising run completed by former Red Deer man
A former Red Deer College student has finished his cross-country trek raising money for the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton.
Curtis Hargrove started his run across Canada on May 4, 2012, in Newfoundland and finished his run in Victoria on Aug. 9.
His epic run was put on hold a few times when he became sick and when he was arrested in Quebec for running on the shoulder of the Trans-Canada Hwy.
His goal was to raise $1 million for the hospital.
Hargrove studied kinesiology at Red Deer College in 2008 before returning home to Northern Alberta to work in the oilfield.
