Iain Gardner

Marathon man

Iain Gardner ran his Across the 'Wack and Back marathon on Monday through Chilliwack.

Iain Gardner, vice principal at Strathcona elementary, runs past a group of energetic students at East Chilliwack elementary during a personal marathon on Monday afternoon.

Gardner ran his Across the ‘Wack and Back marathon in response to his students fundraising efforts for the school’s Terry Fox Run in September.

He challenged his school to raise $2,500, $600 more than last year’s fundraising best. If they met the challenge, he’d run a marathon. The school raised $2,504.99.
