2014 Terry Fox Run at Fall Fair

Bill Miner, Organizer

Terry Fox Run on Gabriola

The Terry Fox Run/walk/bike has gathered years of wonderful memories and thousands of dollars for cancer research. Typically it would be located at Twin Beaches and follow along spectacular shoreline vistas throughout the run. This year, the event will join the community festivities at the Commons as part of the Fall Fair on Sunday, September 14. This combining of events has been suggested to the organizer over the last few years as a convenient way to allow Gabriolans wishing to participate in both events to easily do so.

Registration start at 9 a.m. at the Commons, with the usual event activities and refreshments unfolding between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on the grounds. The run/walk/bike will commence immediately before the Ken Capon Band and follow the band route for the first kilometre then afterwards along charming 5km and 10km routes which will wind back to the Commons. 

Pledge forms will be available at the Commons and at the library, as well as online at www.terryfox.org. Please look for our information table around the village during the next two weeks leading up to the big event on September 14. 

The event may very well return to Gabriola Sands next year and for many years to come, but we very much look forward to seeing you all at the Commons this year. It will be wonderful to feel part of such a popular community event. Anyone wishing to volunteer please feel free to contact Bill Miner, at billminer@shaw.ca.
