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’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.
This year’s event in Kanata-Stittsville takes place on Sunday, September 18. The event starts and finishes at the Kanata Montessori School on Michael Cowpland Drive.
Registration begins at 8:00am and events start at 9:00am. Route distances include 2.5km, 5km, and 10km and are bicycle and wheelchair accessible. The two longer routes travel west through Stittsville on the Trans Canada Trail. Registration and more info here…
