Pickering’s 31st annual Terry Fox Run to Cure Cancer took place Sunday, with many people arriving to honor Terry and to further his legacy. Craig Bamford, 59,  does this run often with his Running Room group, who take the opportunity whenever available to come out and support various charity races. However Terry Fox and his cause hold a special place in Bamford’s heart: he has known three people in his immediate family affected by cancer, including his mother, his mother-in-law and his father-in-law. Bamford believes that if volunteers and participants and the donations they accrue all work together, scientists can and will find a cure. He spoke to Centennial Journalism’s Taylor Bridger, and explained why he was wearing his Shayne’s Shore Run T-shirt.  Listen here.
