Great turn out for members, staff and supporters at the 38th annual Terry Fox run for cancer research in Oakville! On September 16, the run (walk, wheel, bike, stroll, et al) started and finished at Coronation Park at 1426 Lakeshore Road West. Those participating in the event could either walk, run, bicycle, rollerblade or use a wheelchair for the two-kilometre, five-kilometre and 10-kilometre routes.

At the start we had a group picture with energetic Pam Damoff, Federal MP for Oakville North — Burlington. Members, staff and participants wore IUOE Local 793 team t-shirts.

All of us know someone or have a family member touched by cancer. It was good to join the community, raise money for cancer research and work toward Terry Fox’s dream of ending the disease. As of 12noon EDT on September 17, 2018 we raised $1,375. You can still donate and sponsor us at www.terryfox.ca/iuoeLocal793

Special thanks to Local 793 government affairs representative Joe Dowdall for organizing our participation this year!

Local 793 was proud to support the event. Well done everybody who came out! If you didn’t make it this year mark it on your calendar for next year in our 100th anniversary year!
