The Terry Fox Foundation is holding its annual Mt. Terry Fox Trek, approximately 285 km southeast of Prince George, near Valemount, on Saturday, Aug. 18th. Once again members of the Caledonia Ramblers have been invited to attend. The Trek is a Foundation fundraiser to help achieve a cancer-free world and to commemorate Terry Fox's 1980 Marathon of Hope. There will be three different hikes up the mountain, to accommodate hikers with moderate, advanced and experienced fitness levels. The hike to the summit is the most difficult one and is rated as Very Strenuous (F6f). That means the hike can take 12 hours or more, has an elevation gain between 1,500 to 2,200 metres (4,500 to 6,500 feet) and has a total distance of over 20 km. Club members interested in registering for this year's Trek and in receiving more information about it should contact Kirsten Fox.
