Terry Fox Run a big success in Kitimat

Forty-two people participated in this year's Terry Fox Run in Kitimat.

The head organizer for this year’s community Terry Fox Run says they raised $2,600 this year, well ahead of last year’s $1,200 total.

Christine Doherty-Maggs credits the 42 participants who came out to participate this year, which is up from the 28 participants last year.

Next year’s run is already scheduled for September 14, a Sunday.

The schools hold their own Terry Fox Run on September 26.
