Gearing Up For Terry Fox Run

The Chatham Terry Fox run is aiming to raise $1 for every person in the city this year for a grand total of $40,000.

Organizers are putting the call out for volunteers and teams for the September 14 event, to be held in Kingston Park. Adam and Jessica Barton took over the event last year.

“It was in danger of not being held in Chatham. It happened three times previous to that and we didn’t want to see it happen again. Our family has been hit by cancer pretty hard and it’s just something we feel is worthy of a lot of support,” says Adam Barton. “We actually doubled the number of participants and the number of dollars raised than the previous year.”
