Terry Fox numbers and donations up

Organizers of the Terry Fox Run is Ashcroft were pleasantly surprised when they added up the numbers this year.

Dear Editor

On behalf of the Terry Fox Run, we would like to thank all the wonderful and enthusiastic 40 participants who along with their generous sponsors and supporters, helped the Ashcroft and Cache Creek Terry Fox Run raise $3487.98 in this year’s event held on Sept. 14.

Eighty-four cents of every dollar raised, goes directly to cancer research.

Special thank you to Gord and Sonja Matthews, for manning the much needed water stations.  And we’d like to acknowledge the devoted return participants, as well as all the great new faces we met at this year’s event.

Final thank you to Wendy and the whole Journal organization, that continues to support the promotion of our 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 2015 …

Deb and Cam Tedford
