Terry Fox Run activities underway

AMHERST (Staff) - They come out each year to support members of their families and community.

For the past 27-years, seniors and their extended families gather to walk for the Terry Fox Foundation and the goal of finding a cure for cancer.

What started as a walk in Nappan has now moved into Amherst.

The Grandmother's Walk as it has been labelled, used to start at Nash's Cormer in Nappan and navigate throughout the community to raise funds for cancer research

In recent years, the activity has moved into Amherst where walkers, bikers and runners gather to make their way around a course in the Amherst Industrial Park, two circuits in fact.

A group of nearly 50 gathered on Sunday shortly before 9 a.m. to make this year's trek.

Organizations: Terry Fox Foundation

Geographic location: AMHERST, Fox Run, Nappan Amherst Industrial Park
