Zach made tracks right into Barrie Council Chambers Monday night. Ahead of Tuesday morning’s media launch of the Zach Makes Tracks fundraising effort, Zach Hofer and his family gave a short presentation to council on the marathon in support of RVH programming. The 12-year-old told council how his Zach Makes Tracks initiative has already raised over $7,700 in support of RVH Child and Youth Mental Health Services, while more pledges were made by councillors following the show. The fundraiser began with a goal of $10,000, but some councillors suggested re-evaluating that target. Zach is training to run around 25km a day from Barrie to Ottawa, starting August 13th. Zach and his family will be unveiling more details of the run, along with a decked out RV to be used during the trip, at a media get together at Codrington Street Public School Tuesday morning. The presentation came following a request made by Councillor Doug Shipley.
