“FalloRick” follows local man running across Canada


“FalloRick: Home to Home” is a campaign started by Rick Fall to raise money and awareness for Make-A-Wish and Childhood Cancer Canada.

Rick will be running 4200 km from Duncan British Columbia where he is originally from, to Sault Ste Marie, where Rick has called home for over 30 years.

Rick was supposed to start his trek across Canada this time last year, when COVID squashed those plans the day before he was set to leave.  

Rick had the Grand Gardens event space booked to celebrate the launch of his expedition, when word came that the trip he had been planning for over a decade would have to be postponed.  “We still raised $10,000 that night for Make-a-Wish and Childhood Cancer, so it was well worth it.” 

Their journey begins April 2 2021, when they leave Sault Ste Marie and begin driving out west. 

Rick will be leaving Duncan B.C. April 12, 2021.  He hopes to average 42 km a day, running about 100 marathons over the whole journey. 

Rick will be making the trip with his wife Colette who will be driving the support van.  They will be following all COVID guidelines and be isolating in their travel RV for the whole trip. 

Rick and his wife are long time volunteers and organizers for the local Terry Fox Run.  Rick was inspired to carry on Terry’s dream by making this cross-Canada run.

The goal of “FalloRick” is to raise money and awareness for Make-A-Wish and Childhood Cancer Canada, with a target of $300,000 by the time the run is complete.
