Terry Fox Run help appreciated

Ashcroft's Terry Fox Run organizers thank everyone for another successful event.

Dear Editor

On behalf of the Terry Fox Run, we would like to thank the enthusiastic 26 participants, their supporters and very generous sponsors – who together, helped Ashcroft raise $2,905 in this year’s event on Sept. 16.

It is exciting to know that 84 per cent of every dollar raised for the Terry Fox Organization goes directly to Cancer research. What a difference we made today.

Special thank you to Ron Jones for his donation of hotdogs, juice and cooking skills.

Special thank you to Gord and Sonya Matthews for their donation of time, to handle our water stations along the Run route.

And finally, thank you to The Journal, for its help with advertising and promotion of this very important annual event.

See you all in 2013 for the 33rd Annual Terry Fox Run.

Cam and Deb Tedford
