Terry Fox Run going virtual this year


Organizers of the Terry Fox Run were not about to let COVID-19 stop a celebration 40 years in the making.

While the community runs to raise money for cancer research won’t take place this year, the annual event is going virtual this year, according to Petrolia organizer Steve McGrail.

“This means that you can sign up , collect pledges, then you can walk, run, bike, wheel, blade etc…a route of your choice and a distance of your choice when it is convenient for you,” he says.

The virtual event will be Sept. 20 and registration is online at www.terryfox.org

“We can all try to do our part to keep Terry’s Dream alive….even during these strange times we are in.”
