Register for the 2020 Olds Virtual Terry Fox Run. One Day. Your Way. Sunday, September 20th. This year, participate from wherever you are. Around your neighbourhood, backyard, down the street or around the block. Walk, Ride, Run. In these uncertain times, the one certainty we have is that cancer is not waiting for COVID-19 to be over. This year, Canadians will unite in spirit, not in person, for their own version of the Run. 2020 also marks the 40th anniversary of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope.
Now is a great time for participants to register and start fundraising for the Olds Terry Fox Virtual Run, Walk and Ride.
This is the 40th anniversary of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope.
Noel D'Arcy with the Olds Fire Department is organizing the local event again this year. The OFD has been organizing the Olds run since 2015 and he has been involved since 2016. D'Arcy says it has been very rewarding experience to continue Terry's legacy.
He says the Terry Fox Foundation hopes to raise $1 million dollars for cancer research as part of the 40th anniversary celebrations.
Those who register before May 31st, will be entered in a draw to win a pair of limited-edition Adidas ORION running shoes - replicas of what Terry Fox wore in 1980.
Visit the Olds Fire Department Terry Fox Run Facebook page for more information.
The run will take place virtually across Canada on September 20th.
