A combined fundraiser for charitable organizations and a physical fitness awareness campaign to be undertaken by Saskatoon Mayor Don Atchison on June 21 will highlight the Meewasin Trail / Trans Canada Trail that is being built. Atchison, who has been training for months, will cover the 54.72 km journey between Whitecap Dakota First Nation and Wanuskewin Heritage Park on foot. Atchison will start his journey at Whitecap early on the morning of June 21 and is anticipated to reach Wanuskewin in the early evening. Runners and walkers alike will be invited to join Atchison as he enters the city limits. The race will be timed, and participants will pay a fee to register and can raise pledges to support a charity of their choice.
