Without their willingness to play host site to our earnest addiction to velomobiles, this event would not be possible!

Terry Fox Ride

 

 

 

SUNDAY MORNING Rides:

 


 

The main organizer of the Terry Fox Run would like us to participate more fully in their event this year.

This would mean arriving at the downtown park around 9:30am and riding very slowly as a group (parade-style) with a crowd of about 150-200 walkers from about 10am to 11am.

 

There may also be an expectation for us to contribute to their fundraising.

This would provide some potential for public relations and media attention.

 

People participate either individually or as part of a team. Map directions are to the start location of Simcoe Park. Team Up For Terry (TUFT) encourages groups of two or more to register as a group, whether it’s a sports team, business team or just a group of friends. Cancer survivors are encouraged to register to be part of “Terry’s Team,” which will see those wearing special red shirts on the day of the event. 
In Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Sept. 18 run will once again take place at Simcoe Park. Participants are encouraged to run, walk, cycle or blade through the five- or 10-kilometre route. The run starts at 10 a.m. with registration open at 9 a.m.  There will be a barbecue in Simcoe Park following the ride/run. 

- - Registration for the run can be done online at www.terryfox.org/run or in person on the day of the event.
