Today is the first day of Fall Goodbye Summer! You better be more fun next year! COVID Cancels Fox Run The Terry Fox Run and BBQ will not be held this year for the sake of COVID prevention. Terry Fox was the young Canadian diagnosed with bone cancer in 1977. After witnessing all of the suffering from his fellow cancer patients, he was determined to find a way to help everyone affected by the disease. On April 12, 1980, Terry began his Marathon of Hope to raise money for cancer research by dipping his artificial leg into the Atlantic Ocean in Newfoundland. His cross-Canada run was interrupted in September by the spreading of cancer into his lungs. He never made it back on the road to finish the marathon, and died from complications from pneumonia on June 28, 1981. If you wish to donate to the Terry Fox run, contact Heidi at 295-4040. Charitable donations greater than $20 will receive tax deduction slip.
