Alex in The Globe and Mail


Shawna Richer

From Friday's Globe and Mail Every day of the relay will be a highlight for someone - here are just a few of the special stories.

Day 24

Nov. 22

Alex Bain will have the chance to celebrate a long-time love of running when he carries the torch along Hwy. 2 in Winsloe, PEI. The 22-year-old from nearby Oyster Bed Bridge worked tirelessly to win a spot in the torch relay. He applied to be a torchbearer through RBC and wasn't picked, but then applied through Coca-Cola and played the daily trivia game to boost his entry total to more than 100. Bain has autism and struggles to communicate verbally, but he has never let that slow him down. "I'm excited and hoping to have a great time," he wrote on his website.


Thanks to John & Loretta for tipping us off!
