Port Moody Welcomes Back the Terry Fox Run on September 15th, 2024

After a long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the beloved Terry Fox Run is making its triumphant return to Port Moody on September 15th, 2024. This cherished event, which brings together residents and businesses in a spirit of community and philanthropy, has been eagerly awaited by many.

The revitalization of the Terry Fox Run in Port Moody is spearheaded by passionate residents Mark Pettie, Jennifer Pettie, Taylor Lepore, Rod MacBeth, and Paul Slaymaker. Their dedication to keeping Terry’s legacy alive and fostering a sense of community has been the driving force behind this event’s comeback.

Local radio host and mortgage professional Angela Calla will add a special touch to the day by performing the national anthem alongside her daughter. Angela’s participation exemplifies the spirit of unity and community that the Terry Fox Run embodies.

“We are thrilled to bring the Terry Fox Run back to Port Moody,” said Mark Pettie. “This event is not just about running or walking; it’s about coming together as a community to honor Terry’s legacy and support cancer research. We invite all residents and businesses to join us for this meaningful cause.”

Participants can choose to run or walk (or cycle, jog, scoot, skip, march) the 2, 5 or 10-kilometer route, making it accessible for all ages and fitness levels. The event will be a wonderful opportunity for the community to reconnect, support one another, and raise funds for cancer research in Terry Fox’s honor.
