On September 16th, the young and old of Waterdown carried on Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope, as they have since 1981, walking the track of Memorial Park to fund cancer research. Michael Collette of The Rotary Club, which sponsored the run, said “the research really is making an impact locally from Juravinski to some of the other hospitals in town.” Participants, accompanied by Councillor Judi Partridge, walked, ran or rode a bike either 5 or 10 km around the park perimeter after the warm up Zumba class.
