Kimberley’s 41st Terry Fox Run is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 19 beginning at 12 p.m. at Centennial Hall.
Kimberley City Councillor Darryl Oakley, who’s organized the event for many years, says this year they intend to do a mass start, as the event usually sees around 35 to 45 people anyways, which coincides with current COVID-19 regulations.
“We will be spacing everyone out into their groups for physical distancing as well,” Oakley said. “Of course, if the Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry changes any COVID 19 protocols then we will adapt and make changes as necessary.”
Oakley asks that all participants plan to register and make their donations online ahead of the event as they will not be able to take registration at the run site.
The link to sign up is www.terryfox.ca/terryfoxrun/kimberley.
Shirts are also available for purchase this year, and again Oakley recommends ordering one soon if you’d like to get one, as there is a limited supply. Shirts can be purchased at http://shop.terryfox.org
There will also be some live music playing prior to the run this year and Oakley said they are “looking forward to fantastic Terry Fox Run in Kimberley this year.”
