Dear Leah,

Saturday May 28th was another wonderful day for The Terry Fox Foundation as we hosted our Annual Run Organizer Workshop with more than 40 volunteers who traveled to Terry’s hometown of Port Coquitlam from 18 different communities around our region. It was a day full of inspiration, laughter and a chance for everyone to come together and share ideas and meet their fellow volunteer Run Organizers.

We were inspired by the amazing work being done in research by the founding President and Scientific Director of the Canada-wide Terry Fox Research Institute presenting on unleashing the potential of the work they are doing to improve the outcome for young people with cancer. We heard beautiful and very personal memories of Terry from the nurse that cared for him from his amputation until his passing. We were enlightened by organizers sharing how the Terry Fox Run takes place in their community and a fantastic presentation was shared on the power of social media and how we can successfully use it to continue to share Terry’s dream and his legacy in such a far reaching way! What a remarkable day for everyone who attended.

Every year, it is a privilege to host our workshop and thank our wonderful volunteers and show them the respect and appreciation they deserve for the thousands of hours they spend raising funds for The Terry Fox Foundation and cancer research. Your donation of accomodations for our out of town guests was deeply appreciated by everyone who had the pleasure of staying at your property.

I look forward to an opportunity to continue to work with PoCo Inn and Suites Hotel in pursuit of Terry’s dream…a world free from cancer. I am deeply grateful for your support!

With warmest thanks,
