You may know that Garth Watson is running across America; Pacific to Atlantic Oceans for Stand Up 2 Cancer. Canton is planning a welcome for Garth on a tentative date of August 6, 6 PM (He has gotten quite good at predicting where he will be and when). This could change due to weather and God's will, but the plan is to have a welcome party at the Main Street Park. He will be taking Rt 6 through Troy and then Rt 14 on his way to Canton, at that point Garth will have run 2,718 miles! See Garth's blog at garthsrun.wordpress.com
We would like to encourage Troy businesses and residents to put out signs of encouragement for him to see on his way through or to come to Canton for the welcome. This is such an accomplishment and we want him to know how proud we are of him. We appreciate your support.
