Help with Terry Fox Run pays off

Writer thanks everyone who helped with this year's annual Terry Fox Run in Ashcroft.

Dear Editor

On behalf of the Terry Fox Run, we would like to thank the wonderful and enthusiastic 51 walkers, runners, bikers and volunteers who ‘weathered the day’; and along with their generous sponsors, helped the Ashcroft and Cache Creek Terry Fox Run raise $4,271.25 in this year’s event held on Sept. 20.

That total is approximately 16 per cent more than last year’s generous total.

Special thank you to Gord and Sonja Matthews for manning the much needed water station; to Ron Jones for his muscle and clean-up efforts and to community for their donation of a hot dog machine – (the dogs were a nice treat on that rainy day).

Final thank you to The Journal, for their ever willing 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 2016 ….  Bring your friend – the more, the merrier.

Deb and Cam Tedford
