The organizing team are hoping to make the annual event a huge success and continue the community’s worthy contributions to the Terry Fox Foundation and its fight against cancer in B.C. and Canada.

Everyone is welcome to participate in a Terry Fox Run, regardless of age, athletic ability or socio-economic standing. While the Run does not have an entry fee or minimum donation organizers do ask all participants to fundraise or make a donation. You can raise funds online, use a pledge sheet or make a donation at the Run site. Whatever your choice, please know that every dollar counts.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. at the Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre on 29 Avenue (next to the high school) and the event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Participnts are welcome to run or walk or cycle a variety of course lengths, and strollers and dogs on leashes are welcome as well.

It is the fifth year that the Stewart sisters have organized the event in Aldergrove.
