PHOTOS: Exhilarated Nelson crowd runs for Terry Fox

Fundraising by participants brought in $15,835 for cancer research

The annual Terry Fox Run for cancer research attracted 135 enthusiastic participants of all ages to Lakeside Park on Sunday.

They gathered in the park and ran, walked or cycled from the park along the lakefront to halfway along the airport and back. Some of them did the route multiple times.

Fundraising by participants brought in $15,835.

Editor’s note: Thanks to everyone who donated to the Nelson Star’s fundraising effort. We raised $1,270 for the event!
