Three routes offered at Terry Fox Run in Abbotsford

The annual Terry Fox Run takes place in Abbotsford on Sunday, Sept. 16.

The event is held at Tradex, with registration starting at 8 a.m., followed by the run at 9 a.m. Participants can walk, run or wheel their choice of three routes – 2 km, 5 km or 10 km.

Organizers are inviting individuals to participate, as well as encouraging all companies and organizations to enter a team to raise money for cancer research.

There is no fee to enter. Participants are simply asked to make a donation or raise funds online or by using a pledge sheet.

It was 38 summers ago that Terry Fox captivated the country with his determination to find a cure for cancer.

His Marathon of Hope came to an end on Sept. 1, 1980 – after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres – when he became too ill to continue due to the return of his cancer.
