Canadian Paralympian To Be At Echo Valley Provincial Park

On Thursdsay, Saskatchewan residents will have the opportunity to witness something unique at Echo Valley Provincial Park.

Canadian Paralympian Tyler McGregor will visit the park as part of the cross-country Sledge Skate of Hope, inspired by Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.

The three time Paralympian and world champion has set a personal goal to skating his sled 42-kilometres in each province to raise 100-thousand dollars for the Terry Fox Foundation.

McGregor will be on the ice from 9am-1pm, and Sask Parks is encouraging residents to come out, bring their skates or simply walk out to the ice to cheer him on.
