Local 793 proudly supported the Terry Fox Run in Burlington on Sept. 18.
About 40 union members and staff, including business manager Mike Gallagher, participated in the five-kilometre walk. Local 793 organizer Brian Rogerson did the five-kilometre run.
Participants raised $4,015 for the cause.
Union members wore T-shirts with the union name on the back.
Wendy de Pencier was the top fundraiser on the Local 793 team, raising $470.
This was the 34th year of the Burlington event.
The run started and finished at the Brant Street Pier at Spencer Smith Park on Burlington’s lakeshore. The route followed the lake shoreline.
Purpose of the run was to raise money for cancer research and realize Terry Fox’s dream of ending the disease.
Special thanks to Local 793 organizer Russ McBeath and his wife, Jody, for organizing the union’s participation in the event.
