Fabulous support for 2013’s Terry Fox Run

Ashcroft's Terry Fox Run organizers were thrilled with the event.

Dear Editor

On behalf of the Terry Fox Run, we would like to thank the wonderful and enthusiastic 33 walkers, runner and bikers who along with their generous sponsors helped the Ashcroft and Cache Creek Terry Fox Run raise $3462.50 in this year’s event held on Sept. 15.

Special thank you to David Durksen for manning the much needed water station; to Sue and Sandy at Trackside for their donation of ice; to Ron Oliver for the hot dog BBQ;  to Merv McKague for the energizing post-run drinks; and to the Aie families for their clean-up efforts.

Final thank you to Wendy and The Journal, for their always supportive promotion and advertising of this very important annual event.

Those of us who have survived cancer will always be indebted to all of you who give of your time, money and energy – to help find the cure.

See you in 2014 …. The more, the merrier.

Deb and Cam Tedford

Ashcroft
