Held on September 18 at Powell River Recreation Complex, this year's Terry Fox Run returned to an in-person format.
It was the 42nd time the event was held locally.
Participants of all ages chose from a 3.5-kilometre or a 10-kilometre route and had the option to complete it in whatever fashion they wanted, by running, walking, biking or skating.
Fox’s Marathon of Hope began in 1980 with the simple objective of informing Canadians about the importance of finding a cure of cancer. He ran an average of a marathon (42 kilometres) every day for 143 days. His run came to an end on September 1, 1980, when the cancer spread to his lungs.
By February 1, 1981, Fox’s dream of raising $1 for every Canadian was realized when the Marathon of Hope fund totalled more than $24 million.
