Long-time Aldergrove residents and Aldergrove Rotary Club members Larry and Wendy Kydd are hoping to see fellow Aldergrove residents once again turn out in full force for the annual Terry Fox Run.

The 2011 edition of this fundraiser is a non-competitive event at which people get together as individuals, families and groups to raise money for cancer research through the non-profit and volunteer run Terry Fox Foundation. Held every year in Aldergrove since the run’s inception, the Aldergrove event usually attracts about 100 participants.

“It is a day of celebrating Terry’s fundraising mission and his dream that one day a cure for cancer will be found,” said Larry and Wendy.

Sponsored every year by Aldergrove Rotary Club, the run-walk-cycle (or whatever mode of transport you choose) begins with registration at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 18 at Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre, 26770 – 29 Ave.

The run starts at 10 a.m. and the last runners leave at 11 a.m. There are a variety of routes and distances to choose from.

In addition, members of the Aldergrove Rotary Club will be working at a barbecue booth at JD Farms’ annual Customer Appreciation Day the day before the run on Saturday, Sept. 17. The barbecue will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with all of the proceeds going to the Terry Fox Foundation.

“Last year we raised $2,270 for the Terry Fox Foundation at the barbecue,” said Larry. “All of the materials for the barbecue are donated by Jack and Debbie Froese of JD Farms.”

The local schools will also hold their own Terry Fox Run for students on Wednesday, Sept. 28.

For more information call Larry or Wendy at 604-856-6591.
