Fort Saskatchewan's Legacy Park was busy for the 2017 Terry Fox Run.
 
Sunday morning (September 17) was a chilly one, but that didn't stop just over 200 participants for this year's event.
 
"We live in a great community. Just seeing everybody supporting finding a cure for cancer is always an amazing thing," said organizer Barbara Bouwman.
 
Runners had two options with five kilometre and ten kilometer routes ready to conquer.
 
"What a beautiful day to share with friends and fitness," added Bouwman.
 
All across Canada, people are walking and running while raising money for the Terry Fox Foundation (which raises funds for cancer research).
 
Fundraising totals are not yet available.
