In what would have been his 61st year, Aurora residents are working hard to keep the legacy of Terry Fox alive.
Around one hundred participants gathered behind the Aurora Seniors’ Centre early Sunday morning for the annual Terry Fox Run for Hope, walking, running, or cycling two or five kilometer routes to raise both funds and awareness for cancer research.
Though official numbers are yet to come in, donations have exceeded the $15,000 mark for the run site.
Local band Willin’ and Abel provided the soundtrack for the day, as well as the national anthem.
The organizers would like to thank all of the volunteers involved in making the day a success.
