The annual Tecumseh Terry Fox Run saw more than 1,200 participants take part on Sunday, September 16th, 2018.

While totals collected by the end of the Run show $101, 860.52, committee chairperson Jan Wright says that these numbers will change over the next few days as more online donations come in.

“Every year I hear from many people how thankful they are for the Run and all that the committee members and volunteers do,” said Wright. “This year I heard from so many. It feels good to know that we are not only raising a heck of a lot of money for cancer research, but that we have a positive impact on people and families who love the opportunity to share the day, support each other and build community.”

This year, Annual Terry Fox Giant Used Book Sale raised $24,840.

Last year the Tecumseh Run raised a $99,606 which included the used book sale total of $21,000.
