Serving Kelowna Since 1905

Terry Fox Run 2011

 

“The iconic image of Terry running along long and lonely roads during the 143 days of his Marathon of Hope does not convey the full picture of that historic effort. If the photographer were to widen his lens, there would appear the tens, hundreds, even thousands of Canadians lining those very roads cheering Terry on and taking inspiration from his example.”

Today Kelowna hosted the annual Terry Fox Run at the Mission Sports Field where you could either walk, run, or bike along three varying courses of 1.5Km, 5Km, and 9Km.  The Kelowna Professional Firefighters were there to support the foundation by not only taking in the walk, but also to donate $1000.00 to the Terry Fox Foundation.
