A Hinton Hero Returns!
Last year, the Town of Hinton welcomed home Edward Dostaler, also known as Fast Eddy, a one time resident of the community who was travelling east across Canada and then back on foot in support of Alzheimer's and Breast Cancer Awareness. Some may have followed his inspiring journey on social media; he's since made it all the way through the Maritimes and is on his way back right now.
To help support the cause, the Town of Hinton has begun encouraging its employees to participate in Fast Eddy's "Toonie Challenge", and now we're also challenging businesses and groups within our community to take part too! All you need to do is put together a container of some sort to store the toonies in, and then hold onto all donations you receive until Eddy arrives sometime in the next month (if he keeps up his current pace).
