LETHBRIDGE – The Terry Fox Run in Lethbridge is taking place on Sunday, Sept. 16, and participants have been gearing up to raise money for cancer research and help keep Terry Fox's dream alive all week.

Registration starts at 11 a.m. at the Kiwanis Picnic Shelter at Henderson Lake. That will be followed by a short ceremony, then the run begins and a barbeque will finish the day off. 

Lethbridge West MLA Shannon Phillips and Lethbridge East MLA Maria Fitzpatrick will be on hand for the event, as well as Terry Fox’s uncle.

Since it’s calling for rain and cooler temperatures on Sunday, organizers are asking if any Lethbridge businesses would be willing to donate coffee or hot chocolate for the event to contact them at [email protected].

A release from organizers states that while Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope might have ended in 1980, the spark he lit in the hearts and minds of Canadians ignited into a campaign of hope that has lasted more than three decades. 

Once again, hundreds of thousands of Terry Fox supporters around the country will participate in a Canadian fall tradition at one of more than 700 Terry Fox Runs from coast to coast to coast.

Terry Fox had a single dream: a world without cancer. Organizers are encouraging people to join them on Sunday, and for more details on the event, you can visit here.
