WATERLOO — His grandkids call him Jedi.
As in the Jedi knights of Star Wars, wise yet gentle warriors who fight for the forces of good.
And Dave Woodhall of Waterloo has been waging a battle for good, through countless hours and millions of footsteps, as he ran a distance equal to the trek across Canada, to raise funds and increase awareness about Lyme disease.
Woodhall, 74, wrapped up his 7,389-kilometre trek on Sunday, with a cheering crowd of supporters.
