Aldergrove residents of all ages banded together for the 35th annual Terry Fox Run

Aldergrove residents of all ages banded together for the 35th annual Terry Fox Run, starting at Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre Sunday morning at 10 a.m.

Participants could choose to run, walk or ride the three distances offered — 3km, 5km and 10km — and strollers, wheelchairs and dogs on leashes were welcome too.

A hearty volunteer crew, including Aldergrove Rotary Club members, organized the fun event and doled out fresh fruit and refreshments to keep everyone well-hydrated in the light drizzle of rain.

A total of funds raised was not available at press time, however, the Aldergrove Rotary Club contributed $2,600 which they raised in barbecue sales at JD Farms’ Fall Festival on the previous weekend.

The Langley Ukulele Ensemble got the runners off to a good start with some lively tunes at the starting/finish line.

The Terry Fox School Run will follow on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at Canadian schools, including Aldergrove Secondary.
