To the editor;

The Cloverdale Terry Fox Run was hosted at the Cloverdale Legion Branch 6 on Sunday, September 15.

The weather cooperated as 157 participants took part in the 33rd Annual Terry Fox Run. There were also 70 volunteers which included many Legion and Ladies Auxiliary members, the Clayton Heights Jazz Band, and cheerleaders from Seaquam High School.

The total amount raised by the Cloverdale run was $13,392.05 which included silent auction items of $3,615! We would like to say a huge thank you to the local businesses, as most of the items in the auction where donated by merchants in Cloverdale.

Food was served up by the Legion Ladies Auxiliary. There were face painters, a clown making balloon animals for the children, merchandise for sale, as well as Kim Seale from Jack FM as our MC.

It was a wonderful event, and we look forward to a bigger and better event next year!
