RIDGEBACKS TAKE PART IN 29TH ANNUAL TERRY FOX RUN

OSHAWA, Ont. - Members of the UOIT rowing and men's hockey teams participated in the 29th annual Terry Fox Run in Oshawa on Sunday morning, raising money for cancer research. The run was an excellent opportunity for the teams to get involved in an important community event while training for their upcoming varsity seasons.

"The Terry Fox Run is a great way for our crew to participate in a wonderful community event while training for our upcoming season," said rowing head coach Rob Millikin. "All of the members on our crew are committed to their sport and the community."

"It is great to come out and support the community," said assistant captain Nathan Spaling, who organized the men's hockey team. "The hockey fans in Oshawa show us support on the ice so it is nice to give back when we can."

Sunday's run took place in Storie Park in Oshawa, along an 8.4 km course. Jake Schwass, a mechanical engineering student who is in his third year with the rowing team led the entire field, completing the run in just over thirty minutes.

The Terry Fox run is in it's 29th year of being held in memory of Canadian athlete and cancer activist Terry Fox's legendary 'Marathon of Hope' in 1980. As Terry said: "If you've given a dollar, you are part of the Marathon of Hope."
