Winnipeg Terry Fox Run in peril, needs organizer

  • Print

The 33rd annual Terry Fox Run in Winnipeg may not happen if a volunteer organizer doesn't step forward soon.

"We're looking for somebody who can pull it together in Winnipeg," said Tammy Ferrante, provincial director of the Terry Fox Foundation.

The annual run to raise money for the foundation that conducts cancer research is scheduled to take place Sunday, Sept. 15.

But Ferrante said if they can't find a volunteer to organize the run, it may be cancelled this year.

An organizer is needed to "motivate and mobilize a volunteer team and their community," a news release the foundation issued said.

The organizer is responsible for: recruiting committee members, facilitating committee planning meetings, setting and confirming the 2013 Winnipeg Terry Fox Run route, seeking refreshment donations, promoting the run and overseeing run-day activities.

The time commitment may range from two to four hours weekly during the months leading up to the run, the release said.

Interested applicants are asked to contact 204-231-5282 or mbadmin@terryfoxrun.org for more information.
