Hundreds Participate in Annual Terry Fox Run in London
September 20, 2011 by Martin
In what has become practically a September institution in many Ontario communities, hundreds of runners did their part in the battle against cancer in London, ON this weekend. Over 900 runners managed to raise over $120,000 in the run against cancer throughout the London community this weekend. The event took place at Springbank gardens, and participants were welcome to register on site and then begin their walk, run or bike throughout the park. The event draws both repeat and new supporters year after year.
The Terry Fox run is a tradition in many parts of Canada, and is a welcome opportunity for the community to come together, support, and raise money and awareness for cancer research. It is also an opportunity to commemorate the many who have lost their lives and family members through cancer.
Print companies and other advertisers can play a tremendous role in supporting the logistical organization of Terry Fox runs in London and throughout the country, by publishing flyer printing to help advertise and promote the run in community centres and public spaces. Publishers can also encourage sponsorship and donations by publishing leaflet printing and ballot printing for runners to pass on to their family and friends who wish to make a contribution to cancer research.
What makes the Terry Fox run a success year after year is the widespread print and digital promotion of the event, volunteers, fundraisers, and most importantly the runners who embody Terry Fox’s courageous spirit every September.
