Organizer Mike Leclair says the 2013 Terry Fox Run raised nearly $40,000.  About 300 runners showed up to support the 33rd annual event outside Pickering’s recreation complex. Pickering raised more money this year in contrast to the past five years, according to Leclair, who has been helping and organizing and has been volunteering at the event for the past 21 years.  He considers Fox a perfect role model and inspiration for Canadians.
