As far as we know, the annual Terry Fox Run is still scheduled to go ahead today.

Anyone wishing to participate should head down to Riverside Park for the 9:00am 10kmr run, or at 2:00pm for the 5km walk.

Sonia Brooks, organizer of the event, says Terry was a guy everyone should look up to. "He wanted to give people hope, and hope is through research. I'm alive because of cancer research. Although there are a lot of people getting cancer, there are a lot of people who are living with cancer and surviving from cancer. The marathon is about hope, and research gives us hope."

Anyone who would like to donate to the Terry Fox run can do so this morning at Riverside park.
