Participants prepare for Terry Fox Runs in Niagara

Hundreds of people in Niagara will be gathering this weekend to remember one of Canada's most famous humanitarians and to continue his work.

Several Terry Fox Runs are happening in communities throughout Niagara including St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Grimsby, Niagara-On-The-Lake, Thorold, and Welland.

This year St. Catharines' run returns to Lakeside Park after Brock University hosted the fundraiser last year when the park flooded.

All runs are happening this Sunday but specific times and online registration can be found on

Funds will be donated to cancer research.
