An autumn tradition in Yorkton will be taking place this year after all.
In late August, Provincial Terry Fox Run manager Allison Doan said it was due to difficulties in finding an organizer to spearhead the event.
But after hearing it wouldn’t be, Roby Sharpe decided pick up the ball and run with it.
“When we heard there was going to be no Terry Fox Walk, we said ‘well, we’re going to make this happen.”’ Sharpe said.
The Run is happening this Sunday (Sept. 16) with registration at noon and the run itself at 2 p.m. starting at the Yorkton Regional High School.
If you’re interested in volunteering or participating in the Yorkton Terry Fox run, visit www.terryfox.org.
Sharpe also encourages people to collect pledges for the event.
“They can just bring them to the Regional High School and there’s going to be some people from the Provincial Terry Fox Association here collecting those pledges.”
