Terry Fox Run in Ashcroft next week

Support the Terry Fox Foundation in its fight against Cancer and join in the annual Terry Fox Run.

Inviting all Ashcroft, Cache Creek and area residents, ages 2 to 92, to join in the 33rd Annual Terry Fox Run on Sunday, Sept. 15 starting at 10 am.

This year’s event will once again begin at the Gazebo in Heritage Place Park. Participants will run along Railway Avenue and on to Evans (“Slough”) Road. You may walk, run or bike for 2, 5 or 10 km – whatever your comfort level.

All levels of participation are encouraged and greatly appreciated by the Terry Fox Organization.

Water will be provided along the route, as well as Post-Run hot dogs, drinks and treats for all the energetic participants back at the park.

Pledge forms are available at Interior Savings Credit Union, Ashcroft Irly Store, Friendship Auto Service or on-line at

Every dollar you raise is valuable in the fight — with 84 cents of every dollar going directly to cancer research.

Help find the cure – bring your family and friends and have a great time for a great cause.

Join us for the 2013 Terry Fox Run.
