Register online at www.terryfox.org and participate in the 40th Terry Fox Run this Sunday in Hornepayne.

Walk, bike, run or wheel your own route with your family or friends in a safe way! Just because we can't all participate in one group doesn't mean we can't still come together in spirit for Terry Fox!

Hike For Health - Choose your Adventure

Hike for Health


The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on events such as ours, with social distancing and limits on the amount of people that can gather. To ensure the health and safety of our volunteers, participants and communities, we have made the decision to re-imagine the 23rd Annual Hike For Health. Our theme is “Choose Your Own Adventure”. Participants are encouraged to register for the event, and even raise pledges. Hikers take to the trail of their choice during the last weekend of September, the 25-27, 2020. Participants are encouraged to explore any official trail, preferably in the Nipigon/Red Rock area. Choose your adventure today by visiting http://www.nipigon.net/visitors/trails
