Terry Fox Run in Cornwall Raise Over $1500 More in 2017! 091717



PARTICIPANTS: 230 (last year 261)

MONEY RAISED: $18,759 (last year $17,217)

It is with great pride that Josée Sauvé announces yet another successful Cornwall Terry Fox Run which was held on Sunday, September 17, 2017.

The numbers astound me! We had less participants but the donations & pledges this year were more generous! We had one young man, a 9-year old named Oarn Crawford who collected $750 when his goal was $400. His dedication and hard work is the embodiment of what Terry Fox believed in by raising money for Cancer Research. Oarn is only one example of why this run was such a success!”

Organizer Josée Sauvé would like to thank the wonderful volunteers and every single participant that made it to this year’s Cornwall Terry Fox Run. “I would like to particularly thank my family & friends who have all shown tremendous support for my decision to organize the Run 12 years ago. They have spent every Run Day by my side in the trenches and I could never do it without them”.

A great big KUDOS also goes out to all the local businesses in Cornwall who donated items for the Run too. Because all money raised goes to cancer research, it means that items for the run cannot be bought, they must be donated and of course, Cornwall businesses always rise to the occasion.

This is my last year organizing the Run and I want to welcome Chris Nicholls who will be organizing the Terry Fox Run in 2018. The 38th Anniversary of the Cornwall Terry Fox Run will be held on Sunday September 16, 2018 – MARK YOUR CALENDARS!”
