The Terry Fox Run took place Sunday morning at the Roberta Bondar Pavillion, where the programme started around 9:40 and the walk officially taking place from 10:00 am until noon. Around 500 people came out to participate where they could walk, run, jog, even use their wheelchair if need be. Along with the walk there was also a silent auction, t-shirts for sale and activities for the kids. The t-shirts even sold out early in the morning.
There were also teams put together for this years run. Some of the teams included Northside Toyota, Operating room suite hearts, Lawyers for Terry and team Rolling Thunder which was a team of Mark Anderson, Kim Anderson, and Mark Smith who were wheelchair participants.
All proceeds for today’s event go towards the Terry Fox Foundation, with the final numbers being released later today.
