Terry Fox Run September 20: One Day Your Way

September is just around the corner and so is the 40th anniversary of Terry Fox Runs across Canada. It’s the first time in its history that it will be going virtual and not an in-person event.  Hence, the slogan is “One Day. Your Way”!

Last year our Kingsville site raised over $10,000 and I hope that Kingsville and our neighbouring communities will take up the challenge to raise even more money this year.

You can run, walk, bike, urban pole, swim, or any other activity anywhere and anytime of the day you choose on September 20th to support our Kingsville Terry Fox Run.

It isn’t an ideal way to celebrate Terry’s Marathon of Hope achievement from 40 years ago, but even in the midst of a global pandemic, the need for cancer research is ongoing.

“Try like Terry” and think of what he went through on a daily basis as he averaged a marathon a day on his journey. Certainly each of us can devote some time, money and energy to honour our Canadian hero on his 40th anniversary!

You can:

– Register as a participant or create a virtual team (family, friends, work team) and make a donation to our virtual Terry Fox Run Kingsville at www.terryfox.ca/terryfoxrun/kingsville

OR

– You can donate to my MFit team at www.terryfox.ca/MFit

All funds will be credited to our Kingsville site. If you prefer to give cash or a cheque, please contact me directly.

To purchase the 2020 Terry Fox T-shirts, masks and books, go to the main  website at www.terryfox.org.

Let’s make Terry and Kingsville proud!!
