14 FOCUS - SEPTEMBER 2015 The Terry Fox Run returns to the Port Perry Fair- grounds on Sunday September 20th. Registration be- gins at 8 a.m. and the welcome warm up and start is at 9 a.m. Participants can choose to run walk or bike the 1km 5km or 10km accessible routes that begin and end at the Fairgrounds. When participants return there is a complimentary barbecue provided by local sponsors and prepared by the Blackstock and District Lions Club. For a number of years we have wanted to have a childrens activity area and finally we have someone to organize activities. Cant wait to see what they have for the kids. The annual Terry Fox Run for cancer research has raised more than 650 million since Terrys Marathon of Hope in 1980. This marks the 35th anniversary of Terrys Run and once again Port Perry and area will be out to continue Terrys dream to Outrun Cancer. It is critical to know that there isnt any operating budget to host a Community Run. We rely on sponsors who continue to support us each year. We are proud to volunteer for the Terry Fox Foundation knowing that 84 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to cancer research Terry Fox Run Day is a special day for participants. Many take part to honour loved ones who have battled cancer and want to make a difference for others. This is where the concept of Terrys Team began. A Terrys Team Member is anyone who has a personal diagnosis of can- cer is at any stage of their treatment or recovery and is a participant in the Terry Fox Run. They are proud mem- bers of the red-shirted brigade known as Terrys Team. If you are interested in being a Terrys Team Member you can register online or contact Elizabeth for more informa- tion. Terrys Team has become an important part of the Port Perry TFR as we welcome and celebrate with them each year. Terry asked Canadians to donate 1 to his Marathon of Hope and today his wishes have continued. Participants can make a personal donation on run day or collect on- line donations or pledges. There is no minimum donation and no pre-registration. Participants often come to the run as part of a group and now there is a way to reg- ister. Team Up for Terry TUFT co-workers networks familyfriends sports groups businesses are examples of teams. TUFTs is a great way to increase the amount of money raised and a great way to spend a morning with your team. Its time to run walk or bike For more information contact or local organizer Elizabeth McArthur at 905-985-0951 or Eight year-old Kate McArthur and her four year-old sister Sarah are both ready and willing to help their granny Elizabeth McArthur organizer of the Port Perry Terry Fox Run.
