Don’t forget Terry Fox

Millions of dollars have been raised for the cause by the Fox family in Terry’s memory. Let’s not forget.

Over thirty years ago, my family and I were at the first Terry Fox Run and we have supported his cause every year since.

We all want to see the end of cancer but let’s not forget the young man who was the first to pioneer for the cause.

How sad is it that some of the runs in this country had to be cancelled this year due to a lack of volunteers?

There is only so much financial support a person can give and there always seems to be more and more charities asking for money. Volunteering time is another option.

Millions of dollars have been raised for the cause by the Fox family in Terry’s memory. Let’s not forget.
