Sunday September 14th is the 34th annual Terry Fox Run. I’m sure many of you already know that Terry Fox was a very determined, young, man who having lost his leg to cancer, set out to run across our entire country to raise funds for awareness and research into that, often, devastating disease. Do you know all of his story?Following a minor car accident in November 1976, Terry was left with a sore right knee. He mostly ignored the pain, since he was an athlete he was used to it, but when it continued into February of the next year he sought treatment and received painkillers. When the pain became debilitating in March of 1977 he again visited his family doctor who quickly diagnosed osteosarcoma. This is a cancer of the connective tissue and is the most common primary cancer of the bone. On March 9th, when he was only 18, Terry’s right leg was amputated just above the knee. The night before his surgery, Terry’s high school basketball coach visited him and not knowing what to say, he showed Terry an article about an amputee runner who had participated in the New York marathon. This planted the seed for Terry’s idea to run across Canada.

We have had a request and are wondering who out there is interested in a 4:15 p.m. program on Thursdays at Fitness Corner? We are thinking an action packed hour of cardio, muscle, core and flexibility training. Taught by our energetic Jennifer Cooper! Let us know and we will slot this class in for September! We chose the Port Elgin studio because we have lots of space and lots of toys there to make it an interesting class!
