Sunday’s Terry Fox Run in Morrisburg was an incredible success, bringing in a total of $9,801 for the Terry Fox Foundation.
“We had 81 participants, which is better than usual,” said organizer Scott Robinson. “And, we raised a grand total of $9,801. That is our largest amount to date.”
At 8 a.m. Sunday, Robinson spoke to the 40 participants on hand, thanking them for showing up on a chilly Sunday morning to support such a great cause.
“I see some familiar faces that I see here every year, and that’s good. But, I also see some new faces, and that’s good too,” said Robinson who has been involved with the even for the last 12 years.
Not sure why this year’s fund raising effort was so successful, Robinson simply said that they did get more runners out and that larger donations came in.
“I really appreciate all the support of the participants and the donations made,” he added. “I couldn’t do this without the support of my volunteers, the support of the Legion who donates the space to us and to South Williamsburg Riverside Recreation who donated the snacks and the water for along the route.
