Terry Fox Foundation looking for a local hero

The 2017 Terry Fox Run in Jasper needs a hero.
On September 17, the Terry Fox Foundation wants to bring back the Terry Fox Run in Jasper, but the organization dedicated to eliminating cancer needs the community’s help to do so.
“After 28 annual runs in the area that started in 1985, there hasn’t been a community run in Jasper since 2013,” said Wendy Kennelly, provincial director. 
Kennelly wants to bring the tradition back. To do so, she is hoping to recruit a lead organizer of the event—a hero, as she put it.
“The Foundation is looking for an enthusiastic individual, group or organization to be that hero,” she said. She noted the Foundation supplies everything volunteers need to organize the event.
“The cost to you is nothing and we will be with you every step of the way.”
Kennelly said $140,000 towards the fight against cancer was raised over the 28 years of hosting the Run in Jasper.
“Your community has made a great impact on cancer research over those years,” she said.
If someone you know can be a hero, email wendy.kennelly@terryfoxrun.org or visit www.terryfox.org for more info.
