Thanks for Fox Run support

September 24, 2013   ·   0 Comments

On Sunday, Sept. 15, King City once again hosted the King Township Terry Fox Run for cancer research. This was the 33rd year the run has been held to continue Terry’s Marathon of Hope which he began in 1980. Sunday’s event saw 90 participants attend Wellesley Park in King City, in which they walked, ran or biked the 2-km, 5-km or 10-km routes.  Together, these participants raised $3,760.
I would like to thank our participants for their continued dedication, our volunteers for their hours of hard work and our many sponsors, all whose contributions help make the Terry Fox Run and annual event in King City:  Frank Miceli, King City Lions, King City Marketplace, King City Soccer Association, King Township Public Library, King Weekly Sentinel, Pine Farms Orchard, Schomberg Quality Meats, TD Bank, Tim Hortons, Township of King, Township of King Fire Services, York Catholic District School Board, York Region District School Board and York Regional Police 4 District COR Unit.
If you are interested in volunteering at next year’s event, please contact me at 905-833-2697. It is an excellent way to have some family fun or earn community service hours. Hope to see you next year!
