Terry Fox Run Organizer Needed

The Terry Fox Foundation is looking for a motivated and compassionate volunteer to organize the 2017 Terry Fox Run in Fernie.

Fernie has been hosting a Terry Fox Run since 1985, contributing to the more than $750 million that has been raised, worldwide in Terry’s name, in support of impressive and vital progress made in cancer research over the past three decades.

The time commitment is expected to be 2-4 hours per week in the months prior to the September 17 run date.

Responsibilities will include:

  • recruiting committee members
  • confirming the route
  • promoting the run
  • overseeing run day activities

The Run Organizer will always be assisted by the Terry Fox Foundation in the planning process, and given the resources to make it a success.
