For Lisa Gervais, the Terry Fox Run is about drawing inspiration from the right people.

In this case, the right person is friend and mentor, Kay Sibbert. Sibbert, 86, has been going to the Terry Fox run for 27 years, each time running for a different cancer patient. She runs with her friend Margret Blair, 84.

Gervais, a former cancer survivor herself, looks up to these dynamic seniors.

“I hope I’m 86, and in that kind of spirit,” she said. “It’s amazing.”
