Former Clearwater resident “Fast Eddy” Dostaler gives the Shaka sign (Hawaiian for Aloha, “hang loose” or goodwill) as he runs next to the North Thompson River south of Clearwater on Monday.

Now 26 years old, he lived from age eight to age 12 in this community.

He began in Victoria on March 1 and hopes to run across Canada and back to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada and Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
