Terry Fox Run, walk, bike, blade... a success


The annual Terry Fox Run at Western has once again been a huge success. This year's event to raise money for cancer research topped $14,000, beating last year's total by $4,000.

There was a huge turnout of about 550 participants who completed the Terry Fox Run around the 5 km path along the outskirts of campus.
