Terry Fox seeks local leader and volunteers


On September 18, 2022, hundreds of thousands of people across Canada will lace up to participate in the annual Terry Fox Run to raise funds for cancer research. Now in its 42nd year, the event continues to stay true to its roots with a non-competitive, grassroots and family-oriented spirit, with communities all over Canada joining together to realize Terry Fox’s vision of a world without cancer.

The Foundation is looking for volunteers to organize a Terry Fox Run in Fort Frances.

According to a release from the foundation, Terry Fox Runs have been taking place in Fort Frances for almost 30 years. Though it’s been some time since the last full fledged run took place.

“Since 1993, Fort Frances has hosted an annual Terry Fox Run and contributed over $237,000 to cancer research,” the release said.

The foundation is looking for a run organizer and general event volunteers.

Those interested in the volunteering or who want to know more about the roles can can contact Ontario events co-ordinator Kim Smith at Kim.Smith@terryfox.org or by phone at 416-924-8252 ext. 227. Smith is on vacation until July 26.
