Lasalle will run for Ter­ry Fox once again

Le Messager La Salle - - SPORTS - DA­VID COX

For the first time since 2011, a Ter­ry Fox Run for can­cer re­search will be held in Lasalle. Al­though ma­ny of the schools in the area have hos­ted Run events for their stu­dents since then, this is the first one open to the com­mu­ni­ty in 6 years.

«This year’s Run is thanks to vo­lun­teers An­tho­ny Ma­ran­do­la and his co-or­ga­ni­zer Ni­na Mai­su­radze,» ex­plains Ter­ry Fox Foundation Que­bec Pro­vin­cial Di­rec­tor Pe­ter She­re­me­ta. «All our Runs are or­ga­ni­zed on a ze­ro dol­lar bud­get. It was Ni­na and Ele­na Du­bins­ka who or­ga­ni­zed the last one, but they were not able to do so again.» Un­til this year.

In part­ner­ship with Lasalle NPO Les Che­va­liers de Co­lomb, Ni­na, An­tho­ny and the Ter­ry Fox Or­ga­ni­za­tion are plan­ning to hold the Run on Sun­day, Sep­tem­ber 17th.

Com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers can walk or run the 5.5 km at this fa­mi­ly orien­ted, non­com­pe­ti­tive event. Par­ti­ci­pants are as­ked to si­gn up and raise mo­ney on­line by ga­the­ring pledges from fa­mi­ly, co-wor­kers, neigh­bours and friends. The Ter­ry Fox run will start at 7770 Bou­le­vard Lasalle at 10:30 am. To be­come a vo­lun­teer, send an email at qc@ter­ry­fox­run.org or call 1 888 836-9786.
