Race organizer needed for Duncan Terry Fox run

This year’s annual Terry Fox Run is less than two months away. It’s slated for Sunday, Sept. 17 but it’s not going to happen unless somebody plans it.

Officials at the Terry Fox Foundation are seeking an individual or pair to fill the role of volunteer run organizer for what would be the 27th annual event.

The commitment is from two to four hours a week until the big day and the duties include recruiting committee members, confirming the route, promoting the run and overseeing run day activities.

Of course, the organizer(s) would be supported by the foundation and given the resources required to make things successful.

“It would be such a shame for the people of Duncan to miss out on an opportunity to keep Terry’s legacy alive as every community, no matter how big or small can make a huge impact, just as Terry learned in 1980 when a small town of 10,000 people raised over $10,000”, said Donna White, provincial director for the Terry Fox Foundation’s B.C. and Yukon branch.
