I have been following the development of this year’s Terry Fox Run, from the discussion threads of 1.com.my about creating the website and doing for charity and then on from the newly created Terry Fox Run KL website set up. I must say that I was truly happy to know that there would be a run this year as well, from reading your discussions, although it wasn’t officially announced yet :). I really enjoyed my run last year and was keeping a lookout to see if there would be one this year.
I would like to thank you and the rest of the team too, for contributing your time and effort in coming up with an online site where everyone everywhere can get access to information about this run as well as maintaining and managing it, not forgetting that you all do constantly send updates to us too.
I went for the run this year too, and truly enjoyed myself there being with everyone else soaking up the happy friendly atmosphere, although I didn’t stay long.
The people run for different reasons; I too ran with in mind the people whom I know have cancer, died of cancer as well as to give support in creating awareness. I didn’t run alone this year, I ran with a friend whom I got to know from last year’s run, and I got to know a new friend this year as well :)
I hope the proceeds of the run is put to good use.
