Local Terry Fox run coming soon

This year marks the 34th Anniversary of the Terry Fox Run

This year marks the 34th Anniversary of the Terry Fox Run.

To keep Terry’s dream of finding a cure for Cancer alive, the public is invited to participate in the Terry Fox Run on Sunday, Sept. 15 at Centennial Park in Central Saanich.

This will be the 14th year for the local run, which, to date, has raised just over $87, 000.

Registration will take place between 8 and 9 a.m. and is by donation only.

The 5 km walk and 8 km run will start at 9 a.m.

All money raised at Terry Fox Runs go directly to the Terry Fox Foundation for cancer research. If people want to collect pledges, they can pick up forms at Breadstuffs Bakery in Brentwood Bay or Panorama Recreation Centre, or  visit the Terry Fox Run site at www.terryfox.org/Run/.

Last year close to 300 participants walked, ran or biked all or part of the 5 km walk or 10 km run route.

If people are not able to walk the route, they are still encouraged to come and enjoy the food and great community camaraderie; there are always ways to participate.

The Lions Club will be serving up a delicious pancake breakfast for all to enjoy.

The Foundation also welcomes all cancer survivors to sign up as Terry’s Team Members, either via the provincial office (phone, fax, mail, email) or when registering online to fundraise.

Other runs happening in the Victoria area including  Mile 0 and Westshore at the JDF Recreation Centre.

For more information on the local run, contact Connie at connie.hearty@viha.ca
