KENOSEE LAKE - For the past 35 years, the residents of Kenosee Lake have walked or jogged in the annual Terry Fox Run.

Sisters Julie and Shelby Adams were the organizers of this year’s event, which was held Sept. 18.

“My sister and I organize the Terry Fox Run every year. It is special to our family as our mom, Joan Adams, was a close family friend of the Fox family and in fact attended his funeral,” said Julie. “Shelby maps out the five-kilometre route and I take care of the advertising and collecting donations from everyone involved.”

Approximately $2,500 was raised from this year’s event.

“Our family hopes to bring awareness to such an inspirational man and a Canadian hero. We hope one remembers the incredible determination, spirit and strength it took Terry to accomplish what he did, and we hope to continue to bring awareness to such an incredible cause,” Julie said.
