Fox legacy lives on

Cloverdale residents raise thousands during the Terry Fox Run.

The 2011 Terry Fox Run in Cloverdale started and finished at the Legion.

About 150 people braved rainy Sunday morning weather to take part in the 31st annual Terry Fox Run in Cloverdale.

They helped raise $13,066, organizer Elaine Gooliaeff said Monday.

The rain cleared up by the time the run – which started and ended at the Cloverdale Legion – got underway at 10 a.m., but Gooliaeff feared the wet weather may have kept some participants away.

Last year’s Cloverdale run coincided with the 30th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope – and took place in a gigantic downpour that never really let up – attracted 301 participants.

The 2011 event, held Sept. 18, also featured face painting, prize draws, a silent auction, refreshments for participants, and entertainment, including a performance by the Clayton Heights Jazz Band.

The silent auction  raised It raised $3,500  and included Canucks pre-game tickets, furniture, and other goodies, including a Blu-ray DVD player.

Other local runs took place at South Surrey Athletic Park, which drew about 250 participants, Bear Creek Park, and Fraser Heights.
