CORNWALL – People will be running, riding or rollerblading on their own Sunday for the 2021 edition of the Terry Fox Virtual Run.

By its very name, the event will be virtual where people will go it alone in their neighbourhood, street or block raising money for cancer research.

This will be the second year the event is not being held as a local gathering.

At least 20 people were registered on The Terry Fox Foundation website as of Saturday afternoon as participants in the Cornwall event.

Even with the pandemic challenges, the local Terry Fox Run still managed to beat it $15,000 goal last year.

This is the 41st anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.
