Terry Fox Run registration open

Many ways to register for the Penticton Terry Fox Run Aug. 14.

For anyone planning to participate in the Penticton Terry Fox Run Sept. 14, the event’s co- organizer is reminding people there are many ways to register.

Lisa Fitzgerald said although people typically register at the race starting line at the SS Sicamous, people can also register online through the Terry Fox Foundation, or at Cherry Lane Shopping Centre, where an information booth is currently set up.

Fitzgerald noted they’ve got a good crew of volunteers and added she’d like to see more youngsters participating in the run.

“We’re really just pushing for parents to bring their kids to to the event, since there’s no school right now and they won’t be holding any runs,” she said.

Registration begins at the SS Sicamous at 9 a.m. Participants then head out at 10 a.m. on the out-and-back course along the Channel Parkway for two, five or 10 kilometres.

Pledge sheets can be downloaded online from www.terryfox.org or picked up from Fitzgerald, who can be reached by phone at 250-460-2656 or by emailing terryfoxrunpenticton@gmail.com.

The runs now held in Fox’s honour each year raise about $24 million annually.
