The rain certainly didn’t stop Terry Fox, and about one hundred South Surrey and White Rock residents that took that to heart Sunday morning.
Although it was a continuous downpour for much of the morning, a message of Fox’s fight through the rain, snow, and blistering sun was noted before participants took part in the annual event.
Registered participants began the run at 9 a.m. in South Surrey Athletic Park, tackling either a 1.6 km or 6 km distance.
Fox died part way through his Marathon of Hope across Canada on June 28, 1981 at 22. To date, more than $750 million has been raised for cancer research in Fox’s name.
