Raised $1,000 for Terry Fox

Author raised money for the Terry Fox Foundation and exceeded her personal goal of walking 10 km through the encouragement of friends.

Dear Editor,

I did it. I walked the 10 km in the Terry Fox Run on Sept. 16 in Ashcroft!

Back in March, I made this my goal and added to the distance I walked every week until I had accomplished it. I was totally committed to this goal and had the support of many of my friends, family and neighbours.

When I sent a letter to this paper in September, I was informed that it is their policy ‘not’ to print more than 12 names in a Letter to the Editor so I can only “Thank you” collectively. You know who you are!

With your support and encouragement, I raised $1,001 for the Terry Fox Foundation. I am so very proud of all of you. Thank you!
