Terry Fox Run Set for This Weekend at Henderson Lake

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The Terry Fox Run returns to Lethbridge this weekend.

 

The event raises over $3-million annually in Alberta and has generated more than $600-million nationally for cancer research since it was started in 1980.

 

Terry Fox Foundation Provincial Director Ronda Risebrough explains how the money is used, "We fund through the Terry Fox Research Institute, what is called translational research, which is largely taking discoveries that have been made in the lab and bringing them forward to the bedside. It's almost a business type model, where there's a collaborative team effort with a specific goal in mind."

 

Risebrough noted that they want everyone in the community to feel welcome to come out and participate in the run, "Terry himself had a lot of input into what he envisioned the Terry Fox Run to be. One of those things that he was very insistent on was that, as competitive as Terry was, he didn't want the run to be competitive. He wanted it to be an all inclusive, family orientated event for all ages and all walks of life."

 

Registration is at 11 o'clock Sunday morning at the Kiwanis Picnic Shelter at Henderson Lake.

 

It is free to participate, however you are encouraged to collect pledges if possible.
