Kimberley’s Terry Fox Run this Sunday, September 19, 2021

Just a reminder that Kimberley’s Terry Fox Run/Walk is this Sunday, September 19 at noon.

As always the run will leave from the Centennial Centre parking lot. Participants are welcome, but will need to pre register with the Terry Fox foundation as no registration will be onsite. There are limited T-shirts available for purchase at $20/shirt. Cash only please.

Bottled water will be available in addition to a map listing the mileage of the various course distance options.
