On the 30th anniversary for the Terry Fox Run, the congregation of The Church of the Holy Spirit has taken on the pleasure of hosting this year’s event in Fort Frances.
A member of this congregation, George Walsh, has been an active member of the Terry Fox Run since it began 30 years ago.
George, along with his mother, Nora, and brother, Sandy, have carried the flag, along with the colour party in Thunder Bay, to start the race off every year for the past 29 years.
So to honour George, Sandy, Nora, and, of course, Terry, we would like to invite everyone big and small from here to Rainy River to celebrate the 30 years of Terry’s dream.
The date for this year’s Terry Fox Run is Sept. 19.
The exact route has yet to be determined, but will include going along the waterfront.
We are hoping to make this a wonderful family event.
Pledge sheets and T-shirts will be arriving soon, so people can start getting their pledges.
The shirts will sell for $17 for adults or $15 for children.
