    Terry Fox Run - 10KM Run - Fundraiser for cancer research 2013

    Hello All,

    Once again, I will be entering a team to participate in the 2013 Terry Fox Run held on September 15th just outside Gananoque, ONTARIO, CANADA.

    Last year, my team (6 members) raised just under $900.00 towards cancer research. We received several donations from fellow Treeleafers which were really appreciated!

    If you are interested in sponsoring me, please click the link below.

    Thanks

    Shawn,

    I remember Terry from when I was a kid since we got Canadian tv stations where I grew up. An inspiring story and a great cause.

    Much luck to you and much metta to all who benefit from these events.
