Keep Terry Fox in mind this month

Organizers of annual Terry Fox Run remind residents to think of Terry this month, with the annual run set for September 16.

As we enter the new school year and calendars begin to fill with extra-curricular activities, organizers of Kimberley’s Terry Fox Run are asking that you keep Sunday, September 16 free for the annual run for cancer research.

The route will be the same as always — leaving Centennial Hall down to Rotary Drive, continuing to either the Aquatic Centre or Skate Park depending on how far you wish to go; and back.

As always wheelchairs, bikes, roller blades, moms with strollers are all welcome. Dogs are welcome too, but please have them on a leash.

Pledge forms are available online or pick up onsite when you register for the race. Registration begins at 11 a.m. September 16, and the run begins at noon.

There will be treats for runners and even water for the dogs.

And keep in mind that while the Terry Fox Run is a good reason to exercise it is also a fundraiser. Please come to the run with some money pledged for your participation.
