Terry Fox Run returns Sunday

Hundreds expected to take part in annual cancer fundraiser.

Participants take off at the start of a past year's Terry Fox Run.

Hundreds from around the Semiahmoo Peninsula are expected to take part in the Terry Fox Run this weekend, as the community celebrates the 35th anniversary of the event.

This year’s run takes place on Sunday (Sept. 20) at the Rotary Field House in the South Surrey Athletic Park, with registration at 8 a.m. and the run commencing at 9.

The run is presented each year by the Rotary Club of White Rock, who earlier this week recognized a local business for their “extraordinary support” of the run.

Hugh & McKinnon Realty was honoured by the club for donating $2,000 towards a street banner promoting this weekend’s run, which was displayed on Johnston and North Bluff roads last month.
