Verla Fiveash is a volunteer at the Terry Fox Run. For the past twenty years she has been devoting her efforts to raising money for cancer research. This year, in August, Fiveash held a Great Canadian Hair Do party within her community, which involved people coloring and shaving their heads for the Terry Fox Foundation. Over a thousand dollars was raised at this event alone. She tells Erin Sandel of Centennial Journalism what brings her back as a volunteer to the run year after year. Listen here.
