The runners begin the first Agassiz Fox Run

Agassiz Fox Run raises $1,100

Volunteers and runners show their support for first local run

More than thirty runners and about two dozen volunteers showed their support for the first Agassiz Terry Fox Run on Sunday.

In total, the fundraiser collected $1,100 for the Terry Fox Foundation, said organizer Elinor Bell.

“I think it was a really successful event and a fun morning,” she said.

The event kicked off at Cheam Village at 10 a.m., and included walkers, joggers, runners, and even a few dogs and children in strollers. Agassiz Mayor John Van Laerhoven and Harrison Hot Springs Mayor Leo Facio both turned up in support of the run as well.

Bell is hoping the event will grow even stronger in the years to come.
