To the edi­tor

This is a re­min­der that the 37th Ter­ry Fox Run will be held on Sun­day, Sep­tem­ber 17, from 9 to noon, in Rus­sell and Em­brun, on the fit­ness trail. We have two star­ting points: one be­side Ex­pe­rience and one at the trail par­king lot be­hind Mo­ther Te­re­sa School, with prizes at both ends for the first man and wo­man to fi­nish the run. Re­gis­tra­tion is free and can be done on­line as well, and all do­na­tions are gra­te­ful­ly ac­cep­ted. You can get pledge forms in lo­cal bu­si­nesses. Don’t for­get to drop in to Eu­pho­ria as Ma­na­ger Mo­nique and staff are en­thu­sias­tic sup­por­ters of this event. Live mu­sic will be pro­vi­ded by Hap­py to Be Here! There will be a warm up by Pen­ny Lee Pro­vost of Nia and Ali­son Lys­tik’s pound class.

We thank our conti­nued sup­por­ters of this event, es­pe­cial­ly Rus­sell Sco­tia Bank and staff. They do the mat­ched funds for the event and have hel­ped since we have or­ga­ni­zed this event, for over 20 years!

La­belle Tents pro­vide us with shel­ter and have since the be­gin­ning! The Rus­sell/ Em­brun Fire de­part­ments will be cros­sing people sa­fe­ly and we will have pa­ra­me­dics in case of in­ju­ry. You can walk, run, rol­ler­blade or wheel­chair. We have a pit stop at the dog park with re­fresh­ments and fruits sup­plied by Rus­sell Foo­dland. Face pain­ting by Ja­ckie will be pro­vi­ded. Ima­gine Or­tho­don­tic Cli­nic at the traf­fic circle in Em­brun is al­so ope­ning its doors for the Ter­ry Fox Run as a pit stop, for use of wa­ter foun­tain and wash­rooms.

Rus­sell Mayor Pierre Le­roux and coun­ci­lors will open the event and this year’s de­di­ca­tion is to Rus­sell tea­chers Jen Gun­ton and Jit­ka Re­ze­co­va of Em­brun! These two ama­zing wo­men will be at­ten­ding that mor­ning!

Last year, to­ge­ther Rus­sell and Em­brun rai­sed $13,996.77 and the to­tal since 1982 is $286,416.46. Thanks to our in­cre­dible team and the ma­ny vo­lun­teers. We still need stu­dents to come out to help sell t-shirts and cheer on the par­ti­ci­pants! Let’s make some noise for Ter­ry Fox! He still ins­pires us to­day! Hope to see you there,
