Local Terry Fox Run organizers are looking to form a committee to help organize this years running of the Terry Fox Run.

Both members of the committee and volunteers are being asked to step forward, and join the team.

The lone organizer of last years run Lesley Hunt, says that there are a wide range of roles available to be filled including T-shirt sales, looking for sponsors, promoting the run out in the community, and running social media accounts. You can also volunteer to help on the day of the run September 18th.

Hunt says that her favorite part of organizing the run last year was the connections she was able to make.

"just connecting with people and hearing their stories and how they got involved and what they know about Terry Fox and whatnot, just the community aspect of it and doing something further for a greater purpose, it's really is fun."

Those who are interested in helping out are encouraged to contact Hunt via email at lesleyhunt0701@gmail.com, or contact Christie Krawchuck, the Terry Fox Foundations community development coordinator in Calgary at christie.krawchuck@terryfox.org.
