This year's Terry Fox Run in Kenora is coming up Sunday, September 18 and organizers are encouraging the community to lace up and run for a great cause. 

The run, in support of cancer research, will begin at 8:00am at Valleyview School with registration followed by the run at 9:00am. Runners will take off from Valleyview and go down and around Rabbit Lake where water stations and restrooms will be available. 

"We're so excited that it's in-person again this year! Over the last 41 years, we've (Kenora) raised over $570,000 just in our little town. And a big reminder that every $0.77 of every dollar will go directly to cancer research," says committee member Colleen Doerksen.

Register as a family, team or individual at terryfox.org.

There is also an online auction being held on the Kenora Terry Fox Run Facebook page, where the proceeds will go towards the cause.
