94-year-old Saskatoon man walking to Regina to support Children’s Hospital

Well-known Saskatoon resident Frank Atchison plans to walk 5 kilometres per day down Highway 11 from Saskatoon to Regina to raise money for the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Shriners Hospital for Children.

His son, Don Atchison says they have dubbed this “Where’s Frank? Walking for Children” and they plan to arrive in Regina on June 15th.

“The reason June the 15th is so significant is that will be his 95th birthday,” said Atchison. “It will also be his 50th year as a Shriner.”

Money raised will be split between the two hospitals and at the end of his walk Frank Atchison will receive his 50 Year Shriners Service Pin.
