Terry Fox runs to take place this Sun­day

The Sun Times (Owen Sound) - - NEWS -

Sun­day morn­ing the an­nual Terry Fox Run will take place in Har­ri­son Park in Owen Sound.

It’s for walk­ers and cy­clists too; any­one who wants to join the event which raises about $15,000 a year and at­tracts around 150 to 200 par­tic­i­pants to the park. Reg­is­tra­tion starts at 9 a.m., and ev­ery­one will start to­gether at 10 a.m.

Its been 10 years that or­ga­niz­ers Scott and Tracy Greig have run the event.

Scott Greig said it’s a fam­i­lyfriendly event too, which at­tracts young fam­i­lies look­ing for some­thing to do with their kids. It’s also tra­di­tion­ally a day when can­cer sur­vivors and their fam­i­lies and friends turn out to raise money for the Terry Fox Foun­da­tion to sup­port can­cer re­search, he said.

Hun­dreds of thou­sands of Terry Fox sup­port­ers, fam­ily and friends will par­tic­i­pate in events across Canada. Other lo­cal walks planned are: • Kin­car­dine at the David­son Cen­tre with reg­is­tra­tion at 8 a.m. and an open start be­tween 9 a.m. and noon.
