Anonymous donor provides boost to South Surrey Terry Fox Run

Anonymous donor provides boost to South Surrey Terry Fox Run”

Help work toward Terry Fox's Dream of a world without cancer by taking part in the 37th annual Terry Fox Run on Sunday, Sept. 17 at Westminster Quay. Participants can walk, run, ride or wheel routes ranging from one to 10 kilometres along the scenic riverfront esplanade and Westminster Pier Park.

Organizing committee member John Picard says the event is accessible to all and meant to be fun for families and all involved. These participants will wear red shirts for the run, in recognition of their past or present challenges.

The Terry Fox Run - and its sister Terry Fox School Run - is in its 36th year. "But the reality is, there are some people who are indifferent to (events such as the Terry Fox Run), and there are also so many other (cancer-related) charity events... but it would be great to have (a lot) of people out".

During the Marathon of Hope, Fox ran the equivalent of one marathon each day.

Terry made it from St. John's, Nfld., to Thunder Bay, Ont., before his spreading cancer eventually forced him to end his quest.

Since his death in 1981, the Terry Fox Run has been held annually in communities across Canada. The event itself gets started at 5 p.m.
