Team up for Terry

Gather friends, colleagues and families for annual run being held in Agassiz

Plans are underway for the 2013 Agassiz-Harrison Terry Fox Run. Organizer Elinor Bell is putting the call out for those interested in participating to form teams.

“Your group can make a difference in the fight against cancer,” she said. “Terry Fox once said, ‘even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.'”

There are plenty of ways to team up, she added. You can rally colleagues together, or friends.

You can gather up your family members, a social club or athletic group. And you can also use the event as a time to celebrate, honour and remember loved ones.

“We make it easy for you,” she said. “There is no registration fee or minimum donation. Everyone is welcome.”

Your team can walk, jog, run, bicycle or push strollers Dogs (on leash) are very welcome, too.

Register your team by visiting terryfox.org and clicking on “Teams”.

For more information contact Elinor Bell at 604-796-8406 or elimal63@gmail.com, or Ken Burningham at 604-491-5540.
