Sunday, Sept. 16 is the day runners and walkers and wheelers alike will take to the streets in memory of Terry Fox and to support fundraising for cancer research.
In Duncan, the event is again based at the B.C. Forest Discovery Centre.
“We hope to start the run/walk at 10 a.m. again this year so please come early to ensure the registration process can be handled well before the start time,” noted race organizer Todd Frykas.
Volunteers will help with registration beginning at 9 a.m. at the FDC’s back gate.
“The volunteers, who ensure the event is held, and the participants that raise money and provide their personal stories as to why and who they are running for, are quite amazing as we embark on our 32nd year here in the valley,” Frykas said.
Last year the event raised $8,600 — almost double the previous year. This year the aim is even higher.
T-shirts will be for sale near the registration tables, but get there early if you want one as stock is limited.
A truly family friendly event, the folks at the Forest Discovery Centre are again offering free admission and train rides for all participants in the Terry Fox Run.
