Fox Run organizer needed for Agassiz-Harrison area

Terry Fox Run hit 33 year mile marker, but needs support in Agassiz

The Terry Fox Foundation is searching for a volunteer run organizer for the Agassiz Harrison Hot Springs area.

This year’s national Terry Fox Run Day will take place on Sunday, Sept. 15, and marks 33 years since Fox ran 5,373 kilometres in 143 days.

However, the foundation says that Harrison Hot Springs does not currently have a run organizer.

The Terry Fox Foundation is a not-for-profit organization and 84 cents of every dollar raised is donated to cancer research.

“It would be such a shame for the people of Harrison Hot Springs 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 when a small town of 10,000 people raised over $10,000”, says Donna White, Provincial Director for the Terry Fox Foundation BC & Yukon.

If you are interested in becoming the Harrison Hot Springs volunteer Run Organizer, contact Donna White, Provincial Director at the Terry Fox Foundation by email at bcyukon@terryfoxrun.org or by phone at 1-888-836-9786.

The runs are non-competitive and all inclusive; the registration fee is by donation and there is no minimum pledge amount.
