Central Albertans can plan their own activities for this year’s Terry Fox Run

Some of the Terry Fox Runs on Sept. 19 will once again be a do-it-yourself events, due to rising COVID-19 cases. But others will be in-person runs.

Participants can go onto www.terryfox.org to register and to see specific event information for each run site in Alberta.

Central Alberta participants are encouraged to register and fundraise, regardless. If community runs are virtual, any kind of activity qualifies, whether it’s running, bicycle riding or even walking around the block.

“We will unite in spirit, not in person,” say organizers.

They hope the legacy of Terry Fox will continue to inspire people, world-wide to fundraise to beat cancer. For more information, or to register, visit www.terryfox/org.
