Revelstoke Terry Fox run this Sunday

The Powder Springs is hosting the Terry Fox Run for the second year this Sunday, Sept. 18.

The Powder Springs is hosting the Terry Fox Run for the second year this Sunday, Sept. 18. The run (or walk or bike, depending on your preference) will go 10 kilometres from the hotel to Williamson’s Lake and back. Last year only 21 people came out on a grey day and the organizers are hoping for 100 people to take part. You can start any time between 8 and 11 a.m. and there will be a barbecue on the patio of the Last Drop to replenish your energy afterwards. All proceeds will go to the Terry Fox Foundation.

“We want to ensure Revelstoke can significantly contribute to the cure for cancer,” said Emma Kirkland, manager of the Powder Springs.
