Organizers are thanking volunteers and calling the Terry Fox Run held in Langley City last Sunday a great success.
Almost $9,000 was raised by the runners, and organizers said everyone had a great time.
“We wanted to raise money and we wanted to salute Terry’s epic Marathon of Hope. We wanted to celebrate a true Canadian hero, and we did,” said event chair Lilianne Fuller.
There were 262 registered participants and a festival atmosphere at the run site in Douglas Park.
Volunteers were in abundance as well. A total of 58 volunteers came together to make the event a great success. Fuller said Langley is “truly a volunteer hub.”
