Harrison Fox run organizer needed

Terry Fox Run can't happen without a volunteer stepping up to organize in Harrison Hot Springs

A volunteer is needed in Harrison Hot Springs, if a local Terry Fox Run is to happen this year.

The Terry Fox Foundation issued a public plea last week for an organizer to step up for the Village, to keep the dream alive in as many communities as possible.

“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.

The run will be on September 16 this year, in communities around the world.

Contact Donna White at the Terry Fox Foundation by email at bcyukon@terryfoxrun.org or by phone at 1-888-836-9786. For more information about The Terry Fox Foundation, visit www.terryfox.org.
