After surgery and treatment for cancer, Kirk MacLeod triumphantly completed The BIG SWIM on August 4, 2013. He raised over $13,000 for Brigadoon Village. Two days after The BIG SWIM, a CT scan revealed multiple tumours. Kirk MacLeod fought courageously, but, sadly, passed away on April 6, 2014.
I am humbled to be a recipient of The Kirk MacLeod Memorial “Big Courage” Award. I am sorry I never met him, but I will work purposefully to honour his memory.
