This past Sunday marked the fourth annual CityPlace Terry Fox Run at Canoe Landing Park. The event was a huge success, raising a best $16,000+ towards progressive cancer research and attracting over 250 participants..
The weather was beautiful and the neighbourhood was out in full force on Sunday morning. As usual, the event started with some energizing morning Yoga lead by Tribe Fitness. The warm-up was followed by a 5km run/walk. Local partners within the community such as Jimmy’s Coffee and Myodetox provided some much needed post-run refreshments and therapy.
Event Organizer, Sal Chaudhry stated, “There is nothing quite like a great-cause bringing the community together. We can’t wait to build on our success next year.”
Way to go CityPlace!
