The results are in and the Fort St. James Terry Fox Run on September 18 was a great success once again.

There were 105 participants walking, running, strolling or otherwise making their way around the route from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m..

The route left from Cottonwood Park and went around “The Loop” and back, and there were hot dogs, hamburgers and drinks on hand thanks to Overwaitea Foods and some of their staff who were cooking the meat up for participants.

There was also a bouncy blow-up toy to entertain the youngsters thanks to the local district, and the total of $2,340 was the most money raised in the last three years of the event.

Schools participated in the Terry Fox Run on September 28, with about 2,500 schools from across Canada taking part.

Fort St. James Secondary was caught in action running the route on a sunny autumn day. The school raised an estimated $900 towards cancer research this year.
