The Airdrie Terry Fox Run is returning for its 43rd year to help support cancer research.

The fundraising event will be taking place on Sunday, September 17. Kyla Cox, the Organizer for the run explained everybody is invited.

"It is taking place at East Lake Park just right beside the football field and the [Bert Church] theatre."

Registration for the walk will start at 9:30 a.m., the walk will start at 10 a.m.

There is a 2-kilometre loop people can run, walk, bike, roller-blade or scooter around as many times as they want. It is free to register since it is based on donations which can be done online or in-person.

All money fundraised this year will be going towards the Terry Fox Foundation. The Foundation works with people from around the world to support and fundraise for research to end cancer.

"It's a family-friendly event where you can come out, support their cancer research, and have a good walk with your community."

Cox has been the organizer of the run for the past eight years.

"Last year was our first year back [from COVID] and we had about 80 to 100 [people] show up, so it was nice to see everybody come out again."

At the fundraiser, there will be a silent auction with different items donated by local businesses. By popular demand, they will also be selling the popular Ryan Reynolds Terry Fox-designed t-shirts.

Since 1980, the Terry Fox Run has raised more than $850 million.
