Letter: Hall remembered for support of Terry Fox Run

Editor: On behalf of the organizing committee for the annual Langley City Terry Fox Run, I would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the late City Councillor Dave Hall.

He will be greatly missed by so many and, in particular, for his support and participation in the annual Terry Fox Run.

I know that despite his own personal battle with cancer, he participated in last year’s run with a smile on his face.

I, along with the organizing committee members will strive to keep this annual event a reality and encourage the community to honour Dave’s memory by making this year’s run on Sept. 18 a very special one.

We are grateful to have had him champion our cause for so many years, helping to keep Terry’s dream of finding a cure for cancer alive.

To quote Terry Fox in 1980: “Even though I’m not running anymore, we still have to try to find a cure for cancer.  Other people should go ahead and try to do their own thing now.” Even though Dave won’t be running this year, we all will carry on.
