Actress Jean Hamilton, 91, who puts "that s*** on everything" in the Franks RedHot TV ads, will be showing up to the Cloverdale Terry Fox Run on Sunday, Sept. 14, to speak about her three bouts with cancer and autograph bottles of the sauce, for donation. Hamilton will be at the Cloverdale Legion (17567 57th Ave.) for the run. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with the run beginning at 10 a.m. Other Terry Fox Runs in surrounding areas that day include North Delta, Newton, Fraser Heights and South Surrey.
