Run Organizers are needed for Sointula and Woss Lake

The Terry Fox Foundation BC & Yukon Division is seeking community Run Organizers in both Sointula and Woss Lake.

This year’s national Terry Fox Run Day will take place on Sunday, September 16. One run will begin in Port Hardy at the PHSS track, with registration starting at 9:30 a.m.

The Foundation is still looking for a motivated individual to take on the role as a Run Organizer for Sointula or Woss Lake’s Terry Fox run. If you are interested, contact Donna White by email at bcyukon@terryfoxrun.org or by phone at 1-888-836-9786.

The Terry Fox Foundation was founded in 1980 and has since fundraised more than $600 million for cancer research. This was made possible by through the support and commitment of volunteer Run Organizers across Canada working to host annual Runs in their communities.
