The Terry Fox Run

19 Sep

Last weekend we covered the Terry Fox Run that took place here in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.  We were asked to take some pictures of the event by Jamie Snook of The Trappers Running Club and we were happy to help out (check out their site at www.traplinemarathon.ca ).  The annual event started about 30 years ago in support of cancer research and is completely run by volunteers without any type of corporate sponsorship.  So it was really nice to see the huge turnout of supporters and participants that braved the rain and cold to take part. Even more impressive were the smiles on every face that crossed the finish line, regardless of the heavy, puddle-drenched running shoes and the cold, red fingers and noses.

So a big “thumbs up” to all involved.
