On behalf of the Terry Fox Foundation, I want to thank all the participants who came to show their support for the Terry Fox Run and raise money for cancer research.
Thirty-six participants raised $5,254 dollars for the Terry Fox Foundation and, since $0.84 from every dollar goes toward cancer research, $4,413.36 of that money will directly to cancer reseach.
Run participants were invited to write the names of cancer sufferers in whose honor they were participating. It was surprising to see how many people had more than one name to share. For this reason, I am grateful that the Terry Fox Run continues 37 years after Terry's initial Marathon of Hope. Thanks to all participants who keep Terry's dream alive after all of these years.
This run would not be able to continue without the dedicated support of community merchants, media personel, family and volunteers who give their time, talent and resources to make this run a sucess.
Thank you for helping our event run smoothly. If you still wish to donate to the Terry Fox Run and cancer research, please sponsor a child whose Run will occur at their school at the end of September or donate online at www.terryfox.org.
