From Richmond Hill Liberal, Thursday, August 25, 2016

Organizers of the Mill Pond Terry Fox Run want participants to register and volunteers to come forward, ahead of the Sunday, Sept. 18 run to fight cancer in Richmond Hill.

The Terry Fox Run is a non-competitive event held in 9,000 communities across Canada each year, where people get together as individuals, families and groups to raise money for cancer research in the name of Terry Fox.

It is a day of celebrating Terry’s original cross-Canada legacy run and helping to keep alive his dream of finding a cure for cancer.

Terry Fox Runs take place in 31 other countries internationally.

At home in Richmond Hill and across Canada, the events are accessible to anyone, with no entry fee, no minimum pledge and a non-competitive atmosphere.

Participants can run, walk, and most of all have fun while raising funds for the Canadian Cancer Foundation.

At the Mill Pond event, corner of Mill and Trench streets, set-up will take place between 6:30 and 7:30 a.m.; registration, warm-up and opening remarks from 8 to 8:30 a.m.; and continuous registration and start is ongoing until 1 p.m.; with cleanup at about 1:30 p.m.

For further information about the run and to inquire about volunteer positions, contact Rotary Club of Richmond Hill organizer Nash Azam at or call 416-450-1196.
