Despite Sunday’s drizzles and downpours, the 35th annual Terry Fox Run in Williams Lake was another success.
In total, 129 participants, not including babies and pets, took part.
Runners, walkers and riders chose either a one-, five- or 10-kilometre course route winding its way through residential areas in downtown Williams Lake.
An impressive 91 volunteers participated, including the Williams Lake Bantam Timberwolves team who, with their parents, handled the water stations.
Meanwhile, members of the First Williams Lake Pathfinders and Onward Division Rangers, with their leaders, prepared food and ensured everyone was fed after they crossed the finish line.
Organizer Sheila Wyse, who took over running the event this year, said close to $4,000 was raised in support of cancer research to keep Terry Fox’s dream alive.
“The event was a success due to the volunteers, the participants and the sponsors,” Wyse said.
“Williams Lake should be proud.”
