Shawville’s Terry Fox Run

Racers walked, ran, biked and rode in strollers to participate in the Terry Fox Run this year, taking off from Pontiac High last Sunday.
The annual Terry Fox Run took over Shawville Sunday afternoon, drawing out 155 participants and around $6,000 in fundraising for the cause.

The annual Terry Fox Run took place on Sunday, and with it, another opportunity to honour the fight put up by those who’ve battled cancer, while helping fund research for a cure.
Raising around $6,000, participants walked, ran, rode bikes and in the case of strollers, rolled through the 10 km track through Shawville, starting and ending at Pontiac High School.
