Participants in last year's Silver Fox Run walked a route through downtown Castlegar.

Silver Fox Run to be held September 17

Castle Wood Village will host a Silver Fox Run to support the Terry Fox Foundation.

Castle Wood Village will be hosting a Silver Fox Run on Thursday, September 17. The event is a version of the Terry Fox Run geared for seniors. This is the second year Castle Wood has hosted a Silver Fox event and last year over $4000 was raised for cancer research.

There will be a short walk/run that goes around the Castlewood property and a longer one that circles downtown and takes about one hour to complete. The Castlegar Rebels will be on hand to serve water, refreshments and encouragement along the route.

The public is encouraged to participate. Registration can be done in advance through Castle Wood Village or on the day of the race. There is no fee for registration, but all funds donated go directly to the Terry Fox Foundation.

Registration begins at 9:00 and the run starts at 10:30, followed by a by-donation BBQ lunch, silent auction, bake and craft sale, and a dance with live music.

Golden Life, the company that owns Castle Wood will be busing residents from their other properties in Fruitvale, Trail, Nelson and Grand Forks to the event. Organizers are expecting around 500 people at the event.
