Carrying Terry’s dream

Forty-two participants and over 20 volunteers showed their support for the 35th Anniversary of the Terry Fox Run

In spite of the rain participants raised over $2

Forty-two participants and over 20 volunteers showed their support for  the 35th Anniversary of the Terry Fox Run on Sunday. In spite of  the rain we had walkers, runners, babies in strollers and a few dogs. Thanks to our wonderful communities, in total over $2,300 dollars was raised for cancer research.

Agassiz Mayor John van Laerhoven and Harrison Mayor Leo Facio were there to support the Run and to find out who won the “Mayor’s Challenge” ~ turns out Agassiz showed more Terry Fox Spirit (with 21 participants to Harrison’s 14) but on a day like this, everyone was a winner!

As Terry said “It’s got to keep going without me.  I believe in miracles, I have to.”
