Last weekend proved once again Cowichan Lake area residents’ charitable side.

During the Saturday, September 10, Lake Cowichan Terry Fox Run, $1,652.62 was raised for the Terry Fox Foundation.

In total, 85 people participated in the Cowichan Retreads Hiking Club-organized event.

“I’m really happy with the money we got,” one of the event’s key organizers Jean Cozens said, after the event.

The event kicked off at 10 a.m., with the singing of O’Canada by well-known local singer Katherine Worsley.

Participants then set off down the Trans Canada Trail.

So as to not exclude participants due to varying abilities, people were able to choose how far they were interested in walking, biking, or running, up to a total length of 10 kilometres.

Cozens said that next year’s event will be similar to this year’s, but more finely tuned and hopefully with even more people.
