Sunday is set to be a great day to take steps for Terry Fox. 

Looking at a special event going in Alsask that won't need a pedometer, Terry Fox Event Coordinator Candace Rea had a ton of information to share. Their walk will take place around a pancake breakfast put on by the Oyen Lions at the Alsask Community Hall from 9-11 AM.

Local volunteers have been working hard for their 40th local fundraising event, taking part in the national campaign of "Dear Terry".

"For me, Terry Fox was a childhood hero who taught me to dream, to believe nothing is impossible and to draw support from others." said Rea through a paper release. "Those lessons are what I will still draw on to make this year's event happen. Our local goal for 2023 will be to raise $8,500 toward cancer research and I believe with the continued support of this region, we will."

They will have t-shirts, candles, and donated items as part of a silent auction all helping raise money. Other opportunities will be available too, and they expect to cash-out by noon.

It's been a true community effort as Cindy Chiliak has been canvassing donors and promoting items for Terry Fox funds. The Alsask Community Hall was gracious enough to open their doors. Finally, Rea wanted to mention dedicated business owners, residents in general, and past attendees who have helped the event grow.

Anyone who can't make it to Alsask can make a donation online, or by e-transfer to (provide name and address in message for charitable receipt).

Another run is taking place in Kindersley. The community walk will start around 1:00 PM at the beach. People have been pre-registered online for weeks, though anyone still interested in participating on Sunday can still register between 12:30 and 1:00 PM.
