It may be the lazy last days of summer, but it's also time to think about signing up for one of the upcoming Terry Fox Runs.
There are a number of local runs people can choose from this year. And thanks to Sara Pickering, there will also be one in the North Surrey-Fraser Heights area.
Normally, planning a run takes months and when the previous organizer had to step down in August last year, Pickering decided to step up to the plate to ensure the area wouldn't have to go without the annual fundraiser that has become a staple of communities across the country.
With just a month of preparation, Pickering set to work and the rest is history. The Terry Fox Run in North Surrey-Fraser Heights has managed to double its number of participants and donation amount compared to the previous year, and now Pickering is planning on beating those numbers as well.
The annual run is less than a month away, on Sunday, Sept. 15.
The North Surrey-Fraser Heights run is at Fraser Heights rec centre with registration at 9 a.m., the run at 10 a.m. and close at noon.
Surrey-Cloverdale's run will be at the Cloverdale Legion with registration at 9 a.m., the run at 10 a.m. and close at noon.
Surrey-Newton's run will be at Bear Creek Park with registration beginning at 8 a.m., the run at 9 a.m. and close at noon.
The South Surrey-White Rock run is at Rotary Field House in South Surrey Athletic Park with the registration at 8 a.m. In North Delta, the run will be at Sungod Arena with registration at 9 a.m., run at 10 a.m. and close at noon.
There is no entry fee and no minimum donation. For more information and to sign up, scan this page with the Layar app.
