The 2021 Terry Fox Run will look a little different this year in the Okanagan.
On Sept. 19, Canadians across the country will be uniting in spirit to carry the time-honoured tradition of running for Terry Fox.
However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the annual run will take place virtually.
Instead of a large gathering and set course for the run, participants are asked to blaze their own trail with a small group of friends, family or even alone.
Whether it’s along your street, a trail you run every day or even in your backyard, this year’s Terry Fox Run is looking to be more inclusive than any year before it.
To date, over $850 million has been raised for the Terry Fox Foundation, a number that anyone can contribute to by visiting www.terryfox.org/ways-to-give.
For schools, the run will take place on Sept. 29 with students across Canada taking part.
