Lace up your sneakers for annual Terry Fox Run

Longtime organizers looking for someone to take over the annual Terry Fox Run next year

The Terry Fox Run will start at the South Cariboo Visitor Centre on Airport Road in 100 Mile House, Sept. 16.

The run will begin at 1 p.m. and participants can walk, run, roller blade, ride bikes, and push strollers for the five-kilometre event.

Event organizer Werner Heine says “everything is on track, but more volunteers are still needed.”

Werner and his wife, Janet, have organized this event for 12 years and now they want to step back after this year’s event.

Werner says they hope someone will step up and take over. He adds this would be a good time for someone to come out and learn what this event is all about.

All ages are encouraged to participate in the run, and all donations to the Terry Fox Foundation are appreciated
