VANESSA Moore will be running in New Hazelton.

VANESSA MOORE from Terrace will carry the torch for 300 metres in Hagwilget village, which is between Hazelton and New Hazelton on Jan. 30.

“Well, to be chosen to carry the torch for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic is by far the most exciting thing in my life, aside from my children that is,” she says.”

I was in shock at first, when I received the phone call, and then overjoyed and ecstatic. I couldn’t believe it, I had to share the news with my husband, my family and then my friends.”

Moore says she represents not only Terrace but her heritage, too.

“I am very honoured to be chosen to carry the torch. I am not only representing Terrace but also my native background, Nisga’a and Apache,” she says.
