Celebrate Canada’s 150th with Terry Fox

Annual fundraising run set for Agassiz-Harrison on Sept. 17

Terry Fox is a Canadian hero and what better way to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday than by taking part in the Agassiz-Harrison Terry Fox Run on September 17th.

Participants can walk, ride, push, stroll or run. There are 2km, 5km and 10km routes to choose from. Dogs on leash are very welcome.

There is no entry fee and no minimum donation. Everyone is welcome to come and have fun! You can enter on-line at www.terryfox.org or at the event on Sunday.

Terry’s dream was to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He ran 5,373km before he was forced to stop as his cancer had returned. He said, “It’s got to keep going without me.”

To date the Terry Fox Foundation for Cancer Research has raised over $700 million with 84 cents from every dollar raised going directly to research.

The Run starts at Cheam Village located at 1525 MacKay Crescent, Agassiz. Registration is at 9 a.m. The run starts at 10am.
