Heron Park Hackers place 3rd in Wheelchair Relay

On Saturday, September 19, John MacFarlane’s entry in the Canadian Paraplegic Association Ontario Wheelchair Relay Challenge fundraiser garnered 3rd place. We actually placed 4th out of four teams in the final race, but a team ahead of us was aided by motorized wheelchairs.

John was anchor and captain of the team. We won our first two heats. In each race, Erich Kerckhoff led off, followed by Ashley, Colin MacLean, Diane MacFarlane and finally John. This is the second consecutive year the Hackers have reached the final. We hope to improve on our results next year.
