KENOSEE LAKE - Every year, communities across Canada gather to honour a true Canadian hero, Terry Fox, and his Marathon of Hope.
This year, the Kenosee Lake Terry Fox Run was held on Sept. 17. The event brought the community together for a great cause.
The Kenosee Lake Terry Fox Run kicked off with registration. Participants gathered at the Mistik Park Greenspace. The run then commenced, setting off a day of remembrance and fundraising.
One notable difference this year was the route. Instead of following the previous paths, this year's event started and ended at the green space in the village, integrating both the village and the park into the route. Fundraising is a crucial aspect of the Terry Fox Run, and the Kenosee Lake community made it convenient for everyone to participate.
Donation collection forms were available at several locations. These forms made it easy for participants to gather donations from friends, family, and colleagues, contributing to the Terry Fox Foundation's vital cancer research initiatives.
The Kenosee Lake Terry Fox Run was not just about the run itself. Participants and organizers worked together to make this event a success. Posters, forms, t-shirts and other essentials were on hand and distributed to the participants.
