You could buy a nice piece of Vancouver real estate for the amount of money that Jim Terrion has tirelessly raised for the Terry Fox Foundation during the past 20-plus years, and 2014 was no different.
A whopping $28,722.20 was raised for Prince Rupert’s edition of the country-wide fundraiser through pledges and donations on-site on Sunday with $24,342 of that total coming in just 19 days through door-to-door fundraising by Terrion and his mother, Faye.
Jim has now raised $613,408 for Cancer research and stated on Sunday, that one of the highlights of his journey was in 1996, when he helped raise over $47,300 in three months and contributed to Prince Rupert even topping Vancouver’s totals for the race that year.
Sixty-six running/walking participants took part in the race altogether on Sunday, with 14 volunteers helping out. The route began at Northern Savings Credit Union on Third Avenue.
