Despite heavy rain and wind, 120 willing participants turned out for the 35th annual Terry Fox Run on Sunday morning at Fraser River Heritage Park.
The Mission event raised approximately $4,000 for cancer research.
“It was an excellent turnout,” said event organizer Simone Redburn.
“I think it is one of the better turnouts we’ve had,” she said.
Redburn has a long history of taking part, having never missed a run since they began. However, this is the first time she’s organized the event.
“I think it went well overall and I’m looking forward to doing it again.”
