In less than a month it will be time to walk jog or bike in the Terry Fox Run set for Sunday, Sept. 17. The Kapuskasing Golf Club serves as the host location with activities beginning at 10:30 followed by the run at 11. Organizer Susan Renaud is hinting at some minor changes to the route.
“I am looking at a couple of different options if perhaps doing the loop for example because that is about 5 km, and it’s a pretty popular route around town,” she said. “I can do a little online survey or input from some of the other volunteers and folks in town.”
Renaud says 2022 was the first fully participated run following the pandemic and it seemed everyone had a goal of raising a lot of money.
“We raised as a town well over $8,000 which is one of our highest years in quite some time,” she said. “You could really tell folks were putting out that extra effort and donating themselves or going out and doing fundraising themselves.”
Stella Arreza helped to collect just over half or $4,500 of that total.
