The 36th annual Terry Fox Run underway at Tradex today.

Terry Fox Run held at Tradex in Abbotsford

Annual fundraiser for cancer research takes place Sunday

The Terry Fox Run attracted over 50 participants walking, running and riding two-, five- and 10-kilometre with all proceeds going towards cancer research.

Registration began at 9 a.m. at the Tradex Building A at 1190 Cornell St., while the run started at 10 a.m.

All routes are accessible for runners, walkers, cyclists and wheelchair participants, but in-line skaters are not allowed. There will be lots of fun on scene, including radio stations, live entertainment, fitness instructors and several guest speakers. T-shirts will be available for sale on site. Organizers had hoped for 40 participants, but that number was substantially more by race time.

This year marks the 36th anniversary of Terry’s Marathon of Hope.  During that time the event has raised more than 700 million dollars for cancer research.

Donations are accepted in the form of cash or cheques. Visit terryfox.org to register or to make a donation.
