Terry Fox Run a success despite the weather

MORE THAN 40 people braved the harsh wind to participate in the Terry Fox Run here last Sunday.

KIM MCDOUGALL talks to the Terry Fox Run participants last Sunday on the corner of Park Ave. and Kalum St.

MORE THAN 40 people braved the harsh wind to participate in the Terry Fox Run here last Sunday.

Some started to run early and in all, $668.82 was raised to go to cancer research, said organizer Kim MacDougall.

“That’s not bad. I’m happy,” she said.

The wind was so bad, the tent had to be tied to a tree and the Terry Fox Run sign had to be put up with a screwdriver though a tree to hold it, she said.

Despite the weather, those who turned out had a good time, said MacDougall.

This year, there were many t-shirts left over, compared to last year when MacDougall sold them all, including her own shirt.
