I am so proud of him and his achievements

My Son Terry Participated
The Olympic Torch Run

4th August 2000

Terry was selected to take part in this great occasion, in recognition for his
volunteer work with Clean-Up Australia

Around Australia

 10,000 runners 12,000 torches ~~ Relay began 12 May - ended 15 September

Taking 120 days, this relay was the longest ever with the last runner entering the
Olympic Stadium on September 15.

One hundred of those days were in Australia, where the torch zigzagged across
the country, covering 27,000 kilometres, over deserts and mountains,
in surfboats and on horseback: but mainly on foot.

NB -There was even one small section that was swum underwater.


 Terry and the group in Kings Meadows at the check-in point,
preparing to run with the Olympic Torch as part of the run
around Australia.


His run begins (a very cold night)            The hand over to the next Runner.
The people in blue are security escorts.


My Hubby - George with Aldonna, our eldest Grand Daughter,
cheering Terry along on his torch run.

Even our new Great Grandson Ethan was there, but the only cheering
he did was a disgruntled wail.

both enjoying the company of a much happier (and warmer) Ethan.


Aldonna - ever happy
