Terry Fox Run happening Sunday

Locally, there are six locations where you can participate in the run

People from all across Canada will be lacing up for the Terry Fox Run in a few days.

This will be the 39th annual run, which is happening on Sunday, September 15.

There is no entry fee to participate in the run, but runners are encouraged to fundraise or make a donation to cancer research.

And you don't need to run, you can also walk, ride and roller blade.

Terry Fox was forced to end his cross-country Marathon of Hope run, 143 days in near Thunder Bay, after his cancer had spread.

He died in 1981 at the age of 22.

To date, the Terry Fox Run has raised over $750 million.
