Pledge forms available for Gill Memorial Run

John Gill was a valuable member of the University community on a variety of fronts and it is only fitting that the U of L remembers Gill in the spirit with which he lived, by helping others.

The John Gill Memorial Award Run, which raises funds for student scholarships, will take place Apr. 2, 2:30-5:30 p.m. at the 1st Choice Savings Centre indoor track.

Gill's involvement at the University was extraordinary. He was the Alumni Association President, as well as a member of the Board of Governors and Senate. He was also the main drive behind the annual golf tournament "Birdies for Bursaries", which raised thousands of dollars for U of L students.

The goal of this year's run is to raise $10,000; with every dollar raised to be matched by the Alberta Government. To support student scholarships and Gill's legacy, pick up pledge forms at or at the Students' Union office (SU180).
