The Terry Fox Run in Anmore is still without an organizer for this year’s charity event.

And Donna White of the BC/Yukon Terry Fox Foundation says if a leader isn’t found soon, the run may have to be cancelled.

Last month, the Port Coquitlam-based foundation, named after the hometown hero, issued an appeal for someone to step forward to head the run in the village. This year’s run will be held on Sunday, Sept. 16 and, in Anmore, it typically sees about 100 participants (there are also Terry Fox Runs in PoCo, Coquitlam and Port Moody).

Anyone interested in helping can contact White at 1-888-836-9786 or email bcyukon@terryfoxrun.org.
