Terry Fox Run coming soon

Participants in Clearwater's Terry Fox Run will have their choice of two km, five km or 10 km

Registration for the Terry Fox Run in Clearwater will begin at 10 a.m. on Sunday

Clearwater’s annual Terry Fox Run will take place on Sunday, Sept. 18, starting from Rotary Sports Park.

Registration will be at 10:00 a.m. with the run to start at 11 a.m.

The chosen routes are suitable for bikes, wheelchairs, strollers and rollerblades. Dogs on leash will be welcome.

Participants will have their choice of two km, five km or 10 km.

The Terry Fox Run is a non-competitive event where people get together as individuals, families, and groups to raise money for cancer research in Terry Fox’s name. It is a day of celebrating Terry’s legacy and helping to keep alive his dream of finding a cure for cancer.

Terry Fox Runs take place in over 9,000 communities across Canada every year and are accessible to anyone with no entry fee, no minimum pledge and a non-competitive atmosphere. Participants can run, walk, blade or bike and most of all have fun while raising funds for cancer research.

Last year more than 40 people took part in the run in Clearwater, while the year before there were about 50.
