Kelowna crosses $1M mark

Kelowna has now donated more than $1 million to the Terry Fox Foundation.

Contributions from the weekend’s virtual event are still trickling in, but so far the 2021 edition of the Kelowna Terry Fox Run raised more than $25,000.

Prior to this weekend, between 1985 and 2020, $990,788 had been raised in Kelowna. This weekend pushed the community over the $1 million mark.

“Thank you to everyone from Kelowna and across Canada who laced up their shoes and carried on Terry Fox’s incredible journey and mission to raise cancer awareness and funding for cancer research,” said organizer Norm Letnick on Facebook.

“We can now begin the exciting work of planning for a return to an in-person event in 2022, but I wanted to extend a very sincere thank you and congratulations to our community for everything they have done to help carry on Terry’s life changing work and continue his legacy as a Canadian hero.”
