It celebrates one of the most iconic Canadians in history.

The Terry Fox run is happening this Sunday in Timmins at Gillies Lake.

The fundraising event raises money for cancer research, and in 2017, $21.5 million was raised from communities all across Canada.

This Sunday, you can do your part to help raise money and awareness for cancer research. Come by Gillies Lake at 11 AM for registration. The fun run starts at 12 PM around Gillies Lake; runners can go around the lake as many times as they’d like. A walk will start at 1 PM.

The Kinettes will be hosting a BBQ for donations at the event. Free water will be provided. There will also be pledge sheets available for participants throughout the community to fundraise for cancer research.
