Legacy of Terry Fox continues in Dawson Creek

A wet and cloudy morning didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of those participating in the Terry Fox Run – which began at 2 p.m. at the hall – and the clouds parted that afternoon to make for a fairly pleasant run. Despite the number of runners being down this year from last year, the event actually raised about $1,000 more than last year, for a total of $4,150, said Erin Oliver, a volunteer organizer of the run in Dawson Creek.

“Everyone was great,” said Oliver. “They made a huge impact. When I called the numbers into the Terry Fox Foundation, they said the support up here is just amazing.”

She added they had a few out-of-town participants who really made a difference, including one woman who raised over $1,000 in pledges for the run.

She said she is optimistic about next year’s run, but organizers are considering holding it earlier in the day and offering a pancake breakfast in an attempt to draw out more participants.
